Every year I look forward to seeing friends and fellow people of faith at the annual Common Word Dialogue. It is organized by a local group of dedicated Christians and Muslims who are passionate about Christian-Muslim relations.

I try to attend each year and was honoured to be invited as a speaker this year to share the stage with Rev. Dr. Scott Sharman, a theologian and priest in the Anglican expression of the Christian Tradition.

As presenters, we were asked to speak on the topic of Hospitality from the perspective of our own faith tradition. To help facilitate dialogue between ourselves and for the attendees, we split our talks into two parts. A member of our community recorded our talks and has kindly made them available online.
