THE SULTAN AND THE SAINT: AN APPROACH TO CHRISTIAN MUSLIM DIALOGUE

Program Overview


This small group transformational process seeks to bring Muslims and Christians together in dialogue. It aims to cultivate mutual understanding and appreciation of what these faith traditions hold in common, as well as the ways in which they differ.

By nurturing relationships across religious boundaries, the hope is that together participants will model interfaith cooperation as they live out a central tenet of both faiths: to love God and to love our neighbor.

Sessions: Six two-hour consecutive sessions. All sessions include prayer, dialogue, active listening, and relationship building. Some sessions may include DVDs and/or guest speakers.

Participation: Groups will range from 10 – 20 participants balanced equally of Christians and Muslims.

Resources: Participants deepen their understanding through in-depth reading and viewing DVDs and on-line materials. The most essential resource is the community formed through the process.

Immersion Experience: The process entails two immersion experiences that include a visit to a mosque and a visit to a church where we will: 
     □ Gather for an orientation prior to a Friday (Muslim) or Sunday (Christian) workshop service
     □ Observe of the service
     □ Gather for a Q&A after the service concludes
