Faiths and World Fellowship

Nature volume 142, page 746 (22 October 1938) | Download Citation



THE World Congress of Faiths was founded several years ago by Sir Francis Younghusband to promote a spirit of fellowship among mankind through religion. The object of the organization is to awaken and develop a world-loyalty, while allowing full play for the diversity of men, nations and faiths. There have been three congresses, in London, Oxford and Cambridge respectively in 1936, 1937 and 1938 ; and the proceedings have been published in volumes obtainable from the Secretary, World Congress of Faiths, 36 Victoria Street, London, S.W.I. Owing to the tension in the international situation, the committee of the Congress has decided to postpone the holding of the next congress at the American University, Beirut, and arrangements are being made for the 1939 Congress to be held in Paris. A meeting will be held in the Kensington Town Hall at 8.30 p.m. on October 31, at which Lord Gorell will take the chair, and Hindu, Jewish, Muslim and Christian speakers will deliver addresses on “The Crisis: through Faiths to Fellowship”.
