Fostering Interfaith Relationships on the Eastside (FIRE) invites you to our 18th Interfaith Dialogue on Sunday, January 23, 7:00-8:30PM. This Dialogue will be conducted online using Zoom conferencing. Please register for the Dialogue on EventBrite at https://fire-interfaith-dialogue-on-islam.eventbrite.com; the Zoom link will be emailed before the event to everyone who has registered.
The topic for this Dialogue is “Islam”. Muslims from several branches of Islam will share with us on a variety of topics such as the following:
- What is the history of Islam? How did it originate, and how has it evolved over time?
- How is Islam organized on both a local and worldwide basis? How are leaders selected?
- What would the world miss if Islam never existed? What are its unique teachings?
- How does Islam spread the faith to new adherents at this time?
- What are common misconceptions about Islam and how do you explain them?
- How did you first learn of Islam? What prompted you to follow that faith?
- How does the practice of Islam affect your life day-to-day in modern America?
- If one wanted to learn more about Islam, what are some introductory resources?
Their presentation will be followed by open Q&A with the audience. The moderator will use the Zoom “Raise Hand” feature to identify who would like to ask a question, and enable audio and video for each person in turn to ask their question live. You will need to unmute to be heard; enabling video is your choice.
Following the dialogue, we will have open discussion among all attendees for those who would like to participate.
