Keynote Awraham Soetendorp: To amplify the 'whisper of truth'. Towards a council of conscience
Rabbi Awraham Soetendorp will provide the second keynote of the PThU international conference on the good life in crisis. You can watch the keynote live on YouTube.
A quiet revolution for the benefit of humanity and the whole community of life has taken place as representatives of different spiritual traditions have come to realise that we desperately need each other to reach the common goal of justice and peace. Nevertheless the growing interfaith and interdenominational movement has not yet reached its full potential, falling short of providing the much-needed moral compass in our time of crisis. Thirty years ago, at the conclusion of the 1992 United Nations Conference on Environment and Development in Rio de Janeiro, politicians urged religious leaders to help them take measures that in the short term seem to go against national self-interest, but that in the long run are indispensable to safeguard creation. As 'contemporaries of G-d' in sacred time, we must and can harness the indomitable spirit, in 'our mouth and our heart' to buttress life-saving cooperation.
