Happy Ethiopian Easter at Fairfield House

Music and dancing at Fairfield House for Ethiopian Easter

Fairfield House hosted a happy Ethiopian Easter celebration yesterday. There was music and dancing, traditional dress, delicious food and Ethiopian coffee.

People sometimes try to suggest that Bath isn’t diverse; but they’re just not looking very hard. There are a wide range of people and faith traditions alive and confident in this city.

Quakers generally are encouraged to work with other religious groups in the pursuit of common goals:

While remaining faithful to Quaker insights, try to enter imaginatively into the life and witness of other communities of faith, creating together the bonds of friendship. (Advices & Queries 1.06)

You can accept the spirit of “One Love” without trying to reduce all the cities’ faith groups to some pointless lowest common denominator. This was an occasion to celebrate Bath’s diversity.
