Christianity and Islam: Friendship and Contemporary Challenges
Religion has often been used to separate people and demonize those of another faith tradition. We believe, however, that a deep understanding of both Christianity and Islam will lead to the rejection of violence and extremism and affirmation of peace and coexistence. This webinar will explore these paths that Muslims and Christians can walk together in friendship to build the peaceful world that God had intended. Our distinguished panelists of academics and religious leaders from Iran and the US will lead us in this important discussion at this critical moment:

Moderator: The Right Reverend John Bryson Chane D.D., 8th Bishop of Washington DC ret., and Senior Advisor for Interreligious Dialogue, Washington National Cathedral

Professor Gholamreza Aavani, Iranian Academy of Sciences
Professor John Hare, Department of Philosophy, Yale University
Professor Fatima Tofighi, Assistant Professor of Religious Studies University of Religions, Pardisan, Qom (Iran)
Dr. Daisy Khan, (Founder of Women’s Islamic Initiative in Spirituality and Equality (WISE))
Grand Ayatollah Ebrahim Jannaati (video message from Iran)
