Join us for a panel discussion on „Unity in Diversity: Exploring Interfaith Dialogue between Christians and Muslims.” This event will bring together experts from different religious backgrounds to discuss the role of religion in promoting unity and understanding among diverse communities.

In today’s world, tensions between different religious groups can often seem insurmountable. However, with the signing of the Human Fraternity document by Pope Francis and Sheikh Ahmed el-Tayeb, the Grand Imam of Al-Azhar, there is renewed hope for interfaith dialogue and cooperation.

This panel will provide a unique opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of the similarities and differences between Christianity and Islam, and explore the ways in which they can work together to foster mutual respect and understanding. We will discuss how the Islamic tradition encourages dialogue and respect for other faiths, and how Christians approach interfaith dialogue and seek to build bridges of understanding and cooperation with Muslims and other faiths.

Some of the questions we will explore include: Does Islam have a tradition of dialogue with other religions? What is the significance of the Human Fraternity document, and how has it impacted the Christian community?
