CONVERSATIONS THAT MATTER
Building Bridges | A Christian-Muslim Interfaith Dialogue
Sunday, March 26 at 1:30 pm
With recent political decisions to attempt to ban Muslims and refugees from entering this nation for a better life or even for safety, what is our role in responding as people of faith? As a nation founded upon principles of religious freedom and enshrined in our Constitution, what are the duties of a Christian majority in defending the freedom of religious minorities? Fear is a highly controlling force that plays a major role in the narrative around Muslims – and a lack of common understanding about Islam as a religion often fuels the fire of fear.
Our panelists are: The Rev. Chloe Breyer, The Interfaith Center; Dr. Hussein Rashid, Barnard College; and The Rev. Masud ibn Syedullah, TSSF, the Episcopal-Muslim Relations Committee.
Our speakers will discuss:
- what our faiths have in common;
- the "Muslim experience" in this country;
- ways that we can support each other in our communities as people of faith;
- ways that Christians and Muslims can work together for peace, justice, and understanding in our communities and the greater world.
