I have nearly completed Global Mosaic, the sequel to Mosaic. Over 90 humanitarians from different religious traditions from around the world have contributed their favourite prayer or inspiration and their personal reflections on their chosen text. The purpose of Global Mosaic is to show the common humanity amongst the different religions and to build bridges towards peace and mutual respect. Aiming for 100 contributions, I plan to complete the manuscript in September 2011.
Contributors include the Dalai Lama, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Archbishop of Canterbury, The Most Rev’d Dr Rowan Williams, Fr Dan Berrigan SJ, Nelson Mandela through the Nelson Mandela Foundation, Mairead Maguire, Fethullah Gülen, Yusuf Islam (Cat Stevens), HAH Bartholomew and Sr Joan Chittister OSB, Rabbi David Rosen, Sogyal Rinpoche and Bhai Sahib Mohinder Singh.
The renowned international publisher Orbis Books, based in New York will publish Global Mosaic. Orbis Books is a non-profit religious publisher owned by the Catholic Foreign Mission Society of America. Planned publishing date is Spring (northern hemisphere) 2012. Watch this space!
