At first glance, Northern Kentucky doesn't appear religiously diverse, with most of the area's non-Christian residents attending worship at synagogues, Hindu temples, Buddhist adherents and other houses of worship on the Ohio side of the river.

But some Northern Kentucky residents want to make talking about Islam and Christianity a regular activity, with a five-part Islam and Christianity dialogue series.

"A lot of people rub shoulders with Muslim people every day but maybe don't realize it," said Bill Lonneman, advancement coordinator for the Franciscans Network, a co-sponsor of the talks. "The Muslim population in Northern Kentucky is growing, just as it is elsewhere."
