Life Together: A Community and Religious Leaders Conference of Middle Tennessee
This three-day conference was a time of reflection and relationship building among Christian, Jewish and Muslim leaders in Middle Tennessee. We visited houses of worship, heard nationally recognized faith leaders speak to the importance of interfaith relations, and learned from one another about our rich and diverse traditions of faith.
The Our Muslim Neighbor initiated gathered a core group of twenty religious leaders from across the region of Middle Tennessee to probe into the challenges and opportunities of life in our multi faith community. The video to the left covers the final interfaith panel: Life Together: Building a Community of Communities featuring Sheikh Osama Bahloul of the Islamic Center of Murfreesboro, Rev. Dr. Christine Hong, of the PC(USA) and Dr. Yehezkel Landau of Hartford Seminary.
The Challenge of ISIS in America: Perspectives from Interfaith Peacebuilders and Leaders
It’s time for a clearer, more respectful understanding of how the U.S. interfaith movement approaches the conversation between the so-called Islamic State and faith in public life to be heard. We can’t let pundits and so-called experts control the general public’s understanding.
That’s why on October 27th, at 9:30 ET AM, we spoke with Dr. Omid Safi of Duke, Dr. Jerusha Lamptey of Union Theological Seminary in New York City and Mr. Ron Kraybill, Senior Advisor on Peacebuilding and Development to the United Nations, stationed in Manilla, to help us reframe this conversation.
