Celebrating Different Faiths at Merrimack
The Center for the Study of Jewish-Christian-Muslim Relations will be hosting “Feast of Faiths,” our third annual dialogue dinner facilitated by students, on Tuesday, February 11, 2014. This dinner will be located in the Rogers Center for the Arts from 5:00-7:00pm, and is based around a discussion celebrating differences in faith and finding common ground within each other.
We find the value of interfaith engagement supported by St. Augustine: “There is no one in the human race to whom we do not owe love” (Letter 130:13); and in Augustine’s urging that in dialogue and debate we always, “audi alteram partem—listen to the other” (De Duabus Animabus XVI, ii).
All are welcome and encouraged to attend. If interested, please RSVP to Pat Lynch at JCM@merrimack.edu or stop by the Center for the Study of Jewish-Christian-Muslim Relations in the Sakowich Campus Center.
The “Feast of Faiths” will be followed by “Where We Dwell Together: 11th Annual Interfaith Prayer” at 7:00 p.m. in Cascia Hall. We are thrilled to announce that Mackapella will join us again this year to enrich our program. This event is free and open to all.
Mark your calendar, and check back soon for more details.
