Sikh and Christian commit to bring peace

Twenty one young people from different faith backgrounds shared a special day at Nishkan High School Birmingham on the weekend.

We shared our cultures, talents, time and much more in four workshops: Dance, Music, Art and Singing.

The day was made special by the beautiful School which accommodated us and at our shared inter-faith “time out”, we entered onto the “sacred space” in the Nishkam High School and committed ourselves to live so as to bring peace where we are.

At lunch time the Sikh mums brought food to share with everyone so as to live “LANGAR” as they do in the Gurdwara.

From playing the base guitar for the first time to learning dance moves that we would never have dreamt of and creating a collage based on the golden rule expressed by different faiths, we had a very special day full of fun and discovery.

We hope to continue to deepen our relationships and learn from each other through days like this in 2017.
