Dedicated to all those attending

MEFF Interfaith Forum at the

Multicultural Eid ul Adha Festival and Fair

On the day we first met you soon said to me

We’re two sides of a coin surely you agree?

Yes I do, I replied since undoubtedly

We are both striving for human harmony.

With interfaith dialogue you bless many

With mutual respect which soon brings empathy,

Thus forgiveness, compassion and clemency.

While I with the voice of the soul poetry,

Hope in our now multicultural country,

Soul-voiced newcomers will constantly

Help harmonise our growing diversity.

Our ongoing bridge-building may hopefully,

Help heal the deep wounds of humanity,

Inflicted by greed and avarice constantly.

– A primitive passion for power with money?

So let’s all with love now serve one another

And treat those on earth as our sister or brother.

May the years ahead prove fulfilling for you,

Doing what you now miraculously do.

For with faith-to-faith understanding your goal,

You draw many together now, soul-to-soul.

For as you always say so very wisely,

To be truly religious it’s necessary

To be understanding of all faiths surely,

So you’re inspiring many including me,

– Thus we are indeed coin-close spiritually.
