Elaine Downie and Commissioners from the Poverty Truth Commission will lead a conversation on 'A Life of Dignity. What does it mean for each of us? This is a joint event with the Poverty Truth Commission and Faith in Community Scotland.
This is the third in a series of monthly Craighead Conversations, 'What's faith got to do with it?' open to all, which invite us to reflect on key public issues in Scotland today and to ask: what does this mean for an underatanding of faith and what actions will take us to a more just society? Each conversation is held in partnership with an organisation active in the topic area and will feature invited speakers who can share knowledge, experience and engagement in bringing about change. Talks will be followed by discussion. Our three sessions in 2016 focus on the theme 'Crossing Boundaries'. Speakers will address an aspect of the way in which society is divided and we will talk about how we can reach out across these divides to build a more just world together.
