Interfaith Dialogue

Christian & Muslims Talking Together

Respect Graduate School, Moravian Theological Seminary, and Lehigh Dialogue Center mark 10 years of inter-religious dialogues. Candid and respectful presentations about our beliefs, practices and opportunities for cooperation are leading participants to deeper understandings of one another and mutual efforts in our communities. The sessions are held at Respect Graduate School.

Topic: Sexuality, Faith & Respect: Approaching Gender Relations Today

The Spring Series will focus on the topics of harassment and abuse, humiliation and ruined reputations, mistakes and confusion. More than ever women and men are being brought together at work, school, worship, and in social settings. Traditional roles are changing. As we get closer physically, are abuses inevitable? Are our faiths part of the problem or part of the solutions?
