FAITH BRIDGE IS NOW AT TRAFALGAR SQUARE AND GOING STRONG.
You and your community’s offering are most welcome to join the joyful and abundant programme of events in our sacred nook near the lions. Either just rock up and speak to one of the Faith Bridgers, or email xrfaithbridge [at] gmail [dot] com if you have any advance questions.
We are mid-Rebellion, so please prepare your open hear to have fluid expectations and opportunities to practice patience.
With thanks and all the blessed,
Sara and the Faith Bridgers x
***What we said when we were getting reading***
The small Faith Bridge team is supporting a diverse, emergent and dynamically sacred congregation to share an abundant plenitude of services, talks, prayers, alms, meditations, devotionals and tradition-specific rites in a shared sacred complex of temporary structures, gardens, shrines and altars on Lambeth Bridge between 7th-19th October. We will be supported by secular communities from the South West of England to hold our holy Bridge for as long as we can.
**What we said when the idea first began**
The tribes of all Faiths and none, allied faith organisations and the entire South West of England are in movement to gather on Lambeth Bridge because This Is An Emergency.
We will be peacefully shutting down the City of Westminster with thousands of rebels from all walks of life. We are not coming to ask for change, we here to claim change, we are here to be the change.
The time is Now. WE NEED YOU TO SHOW UP!
We are rising together, rebelling for Life, as we grieve the suffering and destruction of our beautiful Earth.
YOUR DRUMS, YOUR LOVE, YOUR OUTRAGE.
YOUR HELPING HANDS, YOUR SONG, YOUR DANCE,
YOUR PRAYER, YOURS WATERPROOFS, YOUR TENTS, YOUR FLASKS, YOUR HEART, YOUR SOLIDARITY FOR ALL THOSE ALREADY SUFFERING, BRING ALL OF YOUR SELF.
It is nothing less than our duty, our response to the call of Life.
The tribes of the South West dedicate their thoughts and efforts to GLOBAL FOOD JUSTICE. We all need to eat. Too many are already starving. Perceived scarcity and greed brought us here, when is enough? NOW!
Food to survive, food is a Human right,
Food for thought, food for the Soul.
Communities from all Faiths are coming together, despite our differences finding our place in common: being stewards of this beautiful Earth.
Stay tuned for more info about our extraordinary program weaved by Love, Vision, Strength and Togetherness.
GET INVOLVED! ALL HANDS ON DECK!
Love, rage & courage xxxxxxxxx
