A Talk on "Religion and Violence" -- Timely
Over the past week, there’s been much discussion in this space and elsewhere about the killings of Sarah and Amina Said and whether their father’s Muslim faith had anything to do with him allegedly murdering them for adopting Western ways. Coincidentally, Saint Michael and All Angels Episcopal Church is hosting a panel beginning Monday called "Religion and Violence: Untangling the Roots of Conflict, An Interfaith Dialogue."
The event will feature a Webcast from New York, during which leading theolgians are scheduled to discuss how religion and and violence often become entangled and what the resources are “within each tradition for living together in peace, without losing unique identities.” There will also be a discussion after the Webcast among those who attend the event at St. Michaels. --Jesse Hyde
