Join us as we examine A Common Word Between Us and You, a document written by 138 Islamic scholars from around the world highlighting the common ground between Islam and Christianity based on Islamic teachings. This document will be explored alongside Loving God and Neighbor Together: A Christian Response to A Common Word Between Us and You, a document signed by over 300 Christian scholars as a way of endorsing continued interaction between the two faith communities.

Scholars from both the Islamic and Christian traditions will explore the passages from each religion’s sacred texts that are referenced in the documents to help shed light on how each tradition views interreligious engagement.

This program is being offered free of charge.  Donations are welcome.

This program is open to the public.
No previous study or knowledge is required.

Space is limited and pre-registration is required.
