Brian McLaren has been active in interfaith dialogue for some time, and he was one of the early signers of the Yale Center for Faith & Culture’s “Loving God and Neighbor Together” document, which was a response to an unprecedented appeal by over 130 Muslims leaders to engage in peaceful dialogue with Christians. Lately the Yale response has been criticized by some Christian leaders, who say it has “sold out” the Gospel. Brian has responded to these critics in writing, and he is further responding by participating in a Muslim-Christian dialogue at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, January 23-27 (right before coming to Charlotte, so it’ll be fresh in his mind!).
We are pleased to announce that Brian will also be participating in a Trialogue discussion—with members of the local Jewish, Christian, and Muslim communities in the Charlotte region—on Saturday, February 2, from 5:30-6:30 p.m. This panel discussion will take place at Area 15 and be moderated by Dennis Teall-Fleming (director of faith formation at Queen of the Apostles Catholic Church in Belmont, NC). The Trialogue discussion is free and open to the public.
So register now for Everything Must Change Charlotte and plan to stay Saturday afternoon/evening for the Trialogue (and more to be announced soon)!
Also, a reminder to check out Friday “late night” discussion groups (more details being posted) …
