Last weekend, more than 60 delegates celebrated the 10th anniversary of the gathering, this year entitled ‘Muslim Futures: Lost and Found in 2050’.
The group explored the challenge and potential set to impact Muslim communities, with sessions on topics such as the future of education, the environment, intimacy and work.
Fellows and friends of the Muslim Institute began coming to Sarum College from all over the world for their annual ‘Winter Gathering’ in 2008.
‘It was a pleasure to hold our annual gathering in Salisbury for the tenth consecutive year,’ says Samia Rahman, Muslim Institute director. ‘The surprise anniversary cake was a touching tribute, and testament to the strong relationship we have developed over the past decade.’
‘It’s wonderful to the Muslim Institute delegates here each year,’ says Sarum College Principal, The Revd Canon Professor James Woodward. ‘We are inspired by the energy with which they tackle big ideas about how to make the world a better place.’
