Sexuality, Faith, and Respect: Approaching Gender Relations Today
Harassment and Abuse, Humiliation and Ruined Reputations, Mistakes and Confusion
A Christian-Muslim Dialogue Series, Spring 2018
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? Our series brings together men and women who will speak from their faith commitments and who will open us for discussion and understanding.
The Christian-Muslim dialogue series is co-sponsored by the Muslim-based Respect Graduate School, Moravian Theological Seminary, and the Lehigh Dialogue Center. The Spring Series completes our 10th year of listening, learning, and understanding. The sponsors welcome all persons of good will to join speakers sharing insights on key inter-religious topics followed by candid and respectful discussions and enjoying delicious refreshments in a hospitable setting.
All sessions in the Spring Series will be held at the Respect Graduate School (ample parking!) on consecutive Wednesday evenings noted below.
