Back in 2000 I was honoured to be part of a British and Irish churches' team supporting an interreligious peace delegation from Sri Lanka on a visit to build solidarity links here. One of the participants was Duleep de Chickera, now Anglican Bishop of Colombo. A remarkable man, his 2010 Easter message of hope has a resonance both within and beyond the particular tragedies of Sri Lanka.
Clearly not. I have just had an email from the Beeb setting out what is on. I thought it was worth reproducing some of the information here, in case the usual claims of religion/Christianity being 'marginalised', are made.
The hope that all Christians will be able to celebrate Easter on the same day in the future has been reaffirmed by an international ecumenical seminar organized by the Institute of Ecumenical Studies at the Ukrainian Catholic University in Lviv.
While Protestant, Anglican and Catholic Christians have just finished celebrating the major Easter festival and are looking towards Pentecost, for some the season is still heading towards its Sunday climax.
