Event: Islam in the Public Square, 10/29

October 26, 2016

Please join us for a one-day conference on Islam in America, “Islam in the Public Square,” on Saturday, October 29, 2016, from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., at Town Hall Seattle.

“Islam in the Public Square” is a gathering of local area leaders to examine the the gap in understanding about this religious tradition. We will discuss the many issues clouding the image of Islam and Muslims in America. The conversation will seek to build understanding and tolerance across ethnic and faith lines, and look for ways all of us can confront and overcome the misunderstandings and fears that divide us. Together, as one Seattle community, we will work together for peace and justice.

The School of Theology and Ministry's Dean, Dr. Mark Markuly, is a featured Keynote speaker about “Understanding Islam and Our Muslim Neighbor”
