The Leap Of Faith Friday April 26th
On the Leap of Faith tonight; the Easter Sunday attacks targeted Christians who make up almost seven per cent of the population in Sri Lanka. Dr Jude Lal Fernando is Assistant Professor in Intercultural Theology and Interreligious Studies at the Irish School of Ecumenics, Trinity College Dublin. His home town is Negombo in Sri Lanka where an attack on a church during Easter services killed more than 100 people. Jude joined us to give an overview of the complex relations between the many faiths on the island.
We also hear about the chance to see the film 'Into Great Silence' during Trinity Week (click here for more information), and to take the Walk of Faith in Hollywood with guide April Clemmer.
This is the final programme in the current series.

With regular updates from across the world’s faiths and from those that hold them, this is a thought-provoking 30 minutes of radio.
