#NAIN Conference in #Edmonton

This year, the annual North American Interfaith Network (NAIN) conference will be hosted in Edmonton. The conference moves around each year to various cities across North America. This year it will be hosted at MacEwan University between August 1st and 2nd (with events preceding and following these workshops and events).

From their website: “NAIN builds communication and mutual understanding among interfaith organizations and diverse religious groups throughout North America. Without infringing on the effort of existing organizations, NAIN facilitates the networking possibilities of these organizations and encourages cooperative interaction based on serving the needs and promoting the aspirations of all member groups.”

God-willing, I will be presenting my workshop Caring for the Muslim Soul Wednesday morning (August 1, 2018). Hope you can swing by.

Dr. Ingrid Mattson: #Interfaith Event in #Edmonton

Ingrid Mattson Flyer

Dr. Ingrid Mattson was my first teacher when I attended Hartford Seminary’s Islamic Chaplaincy program. At the time, I wasn’t sure if it was the right school for me and was still on the fence about it. However, I was so impressed with her knowledge, academic rigor, and the way that she carries herself that I knew I had to stay.

Undoubtedly, Dr. Mattson is one of the key authorities on Islam and Interfaith Relations. She will be visiting Edmonton to provide a talk on promoting interfaith and multicultural connections, and I encourage you to attend if you are in the area.

Tickets may be purchased in advance here.

 

 

A New Class @AlRashidMosque

Windows to Islam is a 2-Day course intending to provide those interested with an objective look at Islam and Muslims. This will be provided through a basic, albeit in-depth, overview of Islamic Theology, Law, and History.

By the end of the course students will have become familiar with many of the subjects covered in a 12-week undergraduate course.

Windows to Islam is not intended to proselytize, or convert any person to the religion of Islam. The sole purpose of the class is to provide fellow community members, clergy, professionals and those interested with an objective perspective of Islam and Muslims in a time when stereotypes have muddled rational observation.

Registration now available online.
