Following the success of our "Christians and Islam"
series in May and June and "Solutions to Violence: The Moral Equivalent to War,"
we're planning a new series called "Muslims and Christians in
We will gather on Saturday mornings,
beginning September 18, from 10 to 11:30 a.m. at the Mennonite Meeting
House, 1236 NW 18th Avenue, Gainesville.
We're waiting until September 18 to start because
our Muslim partners are observing Ramadan until September 11, when they're
celebrating Eid Al Fitr.
This new series is based on a book called "A Muslim
and a Christian in Dialogue," by Badru D. Kateregga and David W. Shenk.
Copies of the book will be available for purchase at the bulk rate
of $14.00 each.
This new series is part of
the peacemaking programs sponsored by the Beltram Peace Center and the
Gainesville Interfaith Peace Coalition (GIPC). Attached to this
message is the GIPC Timeline, as a bit of background on our work.
Looking forward to seeing new and old friends on
Grace and peace,
