The West Coast Catholic-Muslim Dialogue will address the issue of fear in the religious community and open a little bit wider the conversation among religious people as to how fear can keep us from doing what we are supposed to be doing: Act as messengers of peace, acceptance and understanding of one another so that by working together we might be able to help heal the divisions that separate the human family.
In his first Inaugural Address as President of the United States in 1933 President Franklin D. Roosevelt said: “The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.” It was a rallying cry for the American People not to give up hope but to work in the present and look to a brighter future. These are excellent words even for us today as we find ourselves in a state of wonder at how fear has grasped so many people in their relationships with one another, especially in and among the religious community.
Please join us for an evening of companionship on the journey to peace and understanding, at a presentation given by Dr. Michael Kinnamon on the topic of “Fear in the Religious Community.” Doors will open at 6:30 p.m. with a time of “meet and greet.” Coffee, Tea and Sweets will be served. Dr. Kinnamon will speak at 7:00 p.m. leaving time for Questions and Answers. There is no cost for the evening, other than your sincere interest and presence in Inter-religious Dialogue.
Would you please RSVP by Friday Oct. 5th, to: firstname.lastname@example.org to confirm your attendance.
Peace & Blessings,
