Rules for the Conduct of Life

 Registration is closed for this event
A discussion of how people of faith working together can contribute to a shared set of values and ethics. .  This event is open both to Company Members and Non-Members to book. 

​Faith in the Livery today: "Rules for the Conduct of Life"

The importance, influence and relevance of this important booklet, which was first published in 1740 as a set of standards for Freemen of the City of London, will be discussed by leaders of several faiths.  A copy of the booklet is given to all those who receive the freedom of the City of London.

A discussion of how faith can influence behaviour, for good and for evil, will be led by Anglican Bishop Dr Stephen Platten, himself a Liveryman on the Court of the Stationers' Company.  Responses will be made by Jasvir Singh (Chair of City Sikhs, Rabbi Jonathan Romain and our own Noorzaman Rashid.

In the current climate we have the opportunity to adapt our understanding of the "Rules for the conduct of Life". People of faith working together can surely achieve a more positive outcome for the Livery.  Is it possible, whilst remaining committed to the Christian belief, which this booklet draws heavily upon, to have a mutual respect for other faiths?  Whatever faith we hold often depends on in what societies and cultures we were born into and nurtured.  What might each faith contribute to a shared set of values and ethics?
