Religious Violence: Roots and Remedies in Judaism, Christianity and Islam
This series of interreligious trialogues will take a decidedly different approach. We will talk about religion – openly, candidly, and respectfully. Knowledgeable representatives of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam will share their views on topics of crucial importance to each religious tradition. The forums will afford an inside glimpse into each of the three religions, highlighting both similarities and differences.
Following each panel, audience members will be encouraged to ask questions and participate in the search for deeper understanding and practical solutions.
All religions claim to promote peace yet religious violence has unleashed rivers of blood and tears throughout history. What accounts for this seeming contradiction? The panel will address this crucial question and discuss what Jews, Christians, and Muslims can do to ensure a more peaceful future for humanity.
