Sharing Perspectives: Jews, Muslims and Christians: Three Faiths in Conversation
In this course, a community of observant Jews, practicing Muslims and Christians from around the world will live together a an interfaith community at St. George’s College. Over eights days we will encounter the Holy Land together, explore sites sacred to each tradition, welcome the inquiry of each other, and by mutual interest learn of the One God revealed uniquely in each of the Abrahamic faiths. Aided by local religious leaders and skilled guides participants will reflect on their own Fatih and practice, gain new insights into sister traditions and form friendships that will support greater interfaith understanding in our communities back home. The course strengthens faith while encouraging new insights, perspectives and friendships. The aim is for participants to return home resourced to promote Christian-Muslim-Jewish understanding in their respective communities.
Availability: This course was originally designed for U.K. communities. However, for this March 2019 course, we encourage interfaith practitioners from other Western countries to join us. Registration may be restricted so that we can seek a reasonable balance in the numbers of Christian, Jewish and Muslim participants. Please contact the Registrar before enrolling for this course.
