The Rev Donald Reid, director of the ambitious Festival of Spirituality & Peace (6-29 August 2011) in Edinburgh this year has been interviewed on BBC Radio 4's flagship 'Sunday' programme tomorrow morning, appearing at 7.15am.
The programme can be heard for a week afterwards through the BBC 'listen again' facility. There is a brief report here: http://www.ekklesia.co.uk/node/15210 
The Festival is launched officially on Sunday 7 August at St John's Church (at the junction of Princes Street and Lothian Street, fringe venue 127) with an hour-long event at 6pm featuring a range of performers and guests, including Bishop Brian Smith and actor David Benson - along with musicians, the world's premier Tiko drummer, Art Lee, and more.
Then on Monday 8 August at 10.30am, journalist and author Yasmin Alibhai Brown discusses the post 9/11 world, the democratic Arab revolutions, and Samuel Huntingdon's flawed 'clash of civilisations' thesis, along with David Pratt, foreign editor of the Sunday Herald newspaper.
