A good start...

DESPITE the rain that descended on Edinburgh this afternoon, a good audience is waiting outside for tonight's conversation at St John's, which looks at people's ideas of what 'a good society' is and can be.

The discussion arises from a church photojournalism project which took the question around to a variety of communities across Scotland, England, Wales and Ireland, asking what faith communities can contribute to the discussion about common good.

The speakers this evening, looking forward to a good exchange with the audience, are the Rev Padraig Gallagher (Church in Wales left) and June Fearns (Hamilton, right). The chair is the Rt Rev Dr John Armes (pictured centre, Episcopal Bishop of Edinburgh, and former rector of St John's Church, Edinburgh, where Just Festival has its base).

We are about to get underway, and live blogging will commence once more... Look for the next entry on Just Festival News.
