The Abrahamic family has crystallized mainly into three religious communities -- Judaism, Christianity and Islam. Let's tell the tales – past and present – of how people of these faith traditions have joined together in harmony, as we help create a future of peace and cooperation.
. All story tellers and listeners are welcome!
(Stories should be under 10 minutes and have an interfaith collaboration theme.)
This circle will be facilitated by
Dr. Mussarat Chaudhry, Nancy Marie Payne and Audrey Seidman.
For additional information, please call Gert Johnson, 374-0637
After 2007, this confluence will not occur again for more than 30 years!
Join our second celebration of the confluence of sacred moments in the Jewish, Muslim and Christian calendars. The Muslim lunar month of Ramadan and the Jewish lunar month of Tishrei – which includes the High Holy Days, Sukkot and Simchat Torah – coincide this year, beginning sundown September 12. Also, October 4 is the Feast of St. Francis of Assisi (who opposed the Crusades and studied with Islamic teachers), and the first Sunday in October is Worldwide (Protestant/Orthodox) Communion Sunday.
