Blair served as Prime Minister of the United Kingdom from May 1997 to June 2007 and is the founder of the Tony Blair Faith Foundation. The event was hosted by Pastor Rick Warren at Saddleback Church.

    Speaking at the seventh Saddleback Civil Forum, Blair told Warren that he believes the most important issue in the long term is centered on faith. As diverse people are forced to live together, he said at Saddleback Church in Lake Forest, Calif., the key question is, “How do we find common understanding?”

  • “Faith teaches you to understand there is something more important than yourself, which is an important principle in working toward a better world. If individuals can see people of faith in action, helping in support of others, it makes this process of globalization easier,” Blair said.
  • The former prime minister also said, “If faith doesn’t have a major role, then the risk is a process of globalization without values, without beliefs, without conviction.”
