norway peace light 2017The medieval church of St Mary in Bergen, Norway was filled to capacity on 4th December 2016 when guilds, scouts, the City Mission and the diocesan Dialogue Centre came «Together for Peace», with the Peace Light from Bethlehem as the focal point.

Representatives for the Lutheran Church of Norway, the Methodist Church, the Bahai community, Islam, Buddhism and the secular Humanist Association read texts about peace from their traditions and lit candles with the Peace Light.

«An event together for peace will continue in Bergen and perhaps spread to other towns in Norway», guild-master Linda Amundsen, one of those who took the initiative for the event, writes in the Norwegian guild magazine St Georg.
