Green spaces for faith – Stepping Forward Together 2011
The term ‘faiths’ is used in a broad sense to describe religion, beliefs, and wider spirituality as well as people belonging to specific communities of interest. It does not imply that a person has to be part of organised religion to be ‘spiritual’ or to have certain beliefs.
Although the project was based in London, this material is applicable to a broader audience. This includes faith communities, faith and community leaders and people within these groups with an interest in social and environmental action, as well as secular organisations wishing to engage with faith communities.
Faith is often described as a journey of discovery. We have used this phrase to present our ideas, moving from the Starting Points to Journeying Forward Together. The Stepping Stones boxes throughout the text are points to keep in mind. Like most journeys some sort of learning or reflection is beneficial. The Next Steps section signposts readers to a variety of secular and faith-based resources.
