It’s the 10th anniversary of the interfaith Abraham Series of 2005, and we’re celebrating the continued vitality of the Salaam-Chai-Paradise tri-faith group by offering a re-run of this popular program. Alumnae will be back for reunion, and newcomers are welcome, too, as we (Jews, Christians and Muslims) join together to explore our shared Abrahamic roots.
Come add your voice to “An Abraham Trialogue: A Journey to the Heart of Three Faiths” as we learn about and discuss the defining role that Abraham plays in Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. The series will explore both the commonalities and the differences in how Abraham is perceived, and, in doing so, will offer new perspectives on our neighbors and ourselves.
* Free, quality childcare is available for the PVUMC sessions with a 48-hour reservation. Call 602-840-8360, ext 134.
