Church class considers interfaith dialogue
Wilton Presbyterian Church will present a five-part adult education class entitled “Embracing Interfaith Cooperation.” This DVD-based curriculum features host commentator Eboo Patel and is designed to help participants explore what it means to be “literate” about other faiths, how interfaith cooperation works and why, the skills needed for interfaith cooperation and the significant role local churches can play in this process.
Mr. Patel believes religion is a bridge of cooperation rather than a barrier of division. Inspired by his faith as a Muslim, his Indian heritage and his American citizenship, he speaks to his vision of interfaith harmony at places like Clinton Global Initiative, The Nobel Peace Prize Forum, as well as college and university campuses across the country.
Church Elder Robert Bourguignon will lead the class, which will meet in the lounge Monday evenings at 7:30, beginning April 22 and concluding on May 20. The church is at 48 New Canaan Road.
