Film Screening: The Sultan and the Saint

(All day)

Location: 

26 Powderhouse Rd, Groton, MA 01450, USA
The Sultan and The Saint tells one of the great, lost stories from history. Set in a past period of East-West conflict, it speaks with urgency to our present. Two men of faith, one an itinerant Christian preacher, the other the ruler of a Muslim Empire, bucked a century of war, distrust, and insidious propaganda in a search for mutual respect and common ground. It is the story of Francis of Assisi and the Sultan of Egypt, and their meeting on a bloody battlefield during the period of Christian-Muslim conflict known as the Crusades....

At the launch of Faithful Tuesdays in February, prayers from a Reform rabbi and a Unitarian pastor caused the heads of those gathered to bow, and short sermon-style speeches from a Catholic priest and an African Methodist Episcopal layperson echoed around the grand halls on th

'This is about equality': Muslim couple produces braille Quran in English 

March 11, 2019
When Yadira Thabatah converted to Islam 13 years ago from Catholicism, she was eager to learn everything she could about her new religion. The only thing slowing Yadira down was that the 34-year-old mother of three living in Fort Worth, Tex., was born blind. When she and her husband, 33-year-old Nadir Thabatah, who is legally blind but has partial vision, looked for high-quality, English-language resources that she could read, they found nothing. So in 2017, she and Nadir decided it was time for some DIY

2019 Luce-Hartford Conference in Christian-Muslim Relations

(All day)

Location: 

77 Sherman St, Hartford, CT 06105, USA
African Americans have a unique story in the United States. All other non-indigenous communities came to the New World willingly to seek a better life, to escape an old life, or to purchase their way forward through indentured servitude. African slaves, however, were abducted and enslaved, being brought to America against their will. African Americans carry with them this history of injustice, while carving their own way through ongoing inequality, discrimination, and opportunity. This is a truly American experience and story. Relations between African American Christians and Muslims is also... Read more about 2019 Luce-Hartford Conference in Christian-Muslim Relations
