Interfaith event

02Feb2017

An interfaith trialogue on Muslim, Jewish and Christian faiths will explore their common heritage as children of Abraham in a public forum on Thursday.

From 7:00 pm

At Prince of Peace Catholic Church

The forum will begin at 7 p.m. at the Prince of Peace Catholic Church.

A priest, a rabbi and an imam will discuss their interpretations of scripture as outlined in the Catholic Church's Vatican Council II document, Nostra Aetate.

The Nostra Aetate, written in 1965, which discusses the relationship of the Catholic Church to non-Christian religions, is relevant today, organizers said.

The panelists will answer questions from the audience.

The panelists include Dr. Sameh Asal of BIS Hoover Crescent Islamic Center, the Rev. Raymond A. Dunmyer of St. Thomas Catholic Church and Rabbi Jonathan Miller of Temple Emanu-El.

Sister Mary McGehee, OSB, retreat and spiritual director at the Benedictine Sisters Retreat Center in Cullman, will moderate the discussion.
