People of all faiths are invited to Salaam-Chai-Paradise’s three-week discussion series: The Abrahamic Faiths: How do we Relate to Each Other? Each session will be hosted at a different venue but begin at the same time and on the same day of the week, with registration at 6:30 pm on three consecutive Thursdays, January 24, January 31 and February 7. The programs begin at 7 pm. Muslims, Jews, and Christians are invited to talk about their “Sibling Relationships” and how each faith has similarities and differences from each other. Everyone, no matter your religion, is invited to come to these free presentations.
Session I will be hosted by the Islamic Center of the Northeast Valley, 12125 E Via Linda, Scottsdale, AZ, and will focus on “My Faith Tradition’s identity Statement: Who We Are.”
Session II will be hosted by Paradise Valley United Methodist Church, 4455 E Lincoln Dr, Paradise Valley, AZ 85253, on the theme: “What We Say About the ‘Other’ Abrahamic Faiths.”
The final Session III ponders the question: “How do we Believe God Wants us to Organize Ourselves?” Temple Chai, 4645 E Marilyn Rd, Phoenix, AZ 85032, hosts this final session.
Please invite your friends to join you for a closer look at these three faiths, in an effort to promote better understanding and acceptance of all faiths.
SALAAM-CHAI-PARADISE is “An interfaith program promoting the understanding and acceptance of the differences and similarities between the three Abrahamic faiths, Jewish, Christian and Muslim, and promoting a united front against bigotry of all kinds.”
