Charter for Forgiveness, Reconciliation and the Common Good: The Path to a Just world, Peaceful Fellowship and Healing
Drawing upon values, stories, gems and examples I discovered since my first visit to Coventry Cathedral in November 1973
Prof. Kamran Mofid, Founder, GCGI, and Co-founder and Associate Director, Centre for the Study of Forgiveness and Reconciliation, Coventry University 1996-1999
"Father Forgive": These two words which I discovered at the ruins of Coventry Cathedral in 1973 changed the course of my life.
By his selfless actions, Richard Howard, Provost, Coventry Cathedral, 1933-1958, has bestowed to the world, the most authentic and true Charter of Forgiveness and Reconciliation, the world ever needs.
Reimagining a Better World: A World of Hope and Healing
Altar of Reconciliation in the old Coventry Cathedral
‘Within the Sanctuary is a replica of the charred beams which, on the night of the bombing, fell down from the roof and landed in the shape of a cross. A Cathedral worker called Jock Forbes saw them from the top of the Tower and considered their formation to be a divine signal of hope and resurrection. Behind the Charred Cross and the reconstructed Altar are the words ‘Father Forgive’, written on the East Wall by Provost Richard Howard in 1940.’ -Photo: Anne Mofid
