Festival of Spirituality and Peace. It's also the name of a fine blog from Jesuit priest Fr Tim Byron, currently working in Edinburgh in the city centre parish of the Sacred Heart.
Tim's blog has that title. In Latin it's Schola Affectus. He writes: "Having returned to Edinburgh from beautiful Arisaig it is impossible not
to notice all the posters that have popped up all over the place. They
announce the imminent arrival of the Edinburgh International Arts
Festival and its 23 associated festivals. There are book festivals,
jazz festivals, politics festival, contemporary art festivals, street
performance, internet festivals and interestingly a festival of spirituality and peace.
"In its twelfth year, the base ... is
an Episcopalian Church, St Johns on Princes Street although there
are over 400 activities across 21 venues. With speakers, conversations,
performances, film, food, exhibitions, family activities, workshops,
art, culture and more ‘FOSP’ is now looking forward to its twelfth year.
"The programme is eclectic varying from a Soweto based dance troupe,
Poetry in a Persian Tent, sessions on Ethical Banking, Jewish
storytelling and Asian & Arabic fusion dance. I am booking tickets
for some discussion events, including one with the title of ‘Where are
the Organisational Healers?’ and another intriguingly entitled ‘Churches
own 8% of the planet’."
