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. Building Bridges | A Christian-Muslim Interfaith Dialogue is an opportunity for us to learn more about Islam and our Muslim brothers and sisters. At this moderated panel discussion, 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 to strive for peace, justice, and understanding in our communities and the greater world.

Please join us on Sunday, March 26th at 1:30 pm for this timely and important “Conversation That Matters.” For more information, and to sign up, please visit St. Luke's Eventbrite page here.
