. . . has become the Interfaith Dialogues Class! We continue to meet each Sunday morning at 9:45 in 202 Wingate Hall, adjacent to Wait Chapel. You are invited and welcome to attend and participate in our lively discussions.
A lengthy and stimulating study of the Qur’an and Islam, and of the Palestinian/Israeli conflict, has led us to want to explore Judaism more fully, so we thought the name of our class should more appropriately reflect what we do. We utilize films, books, and video lectures, and often invite guest speakers to aid our investigations.
This Sunday, October 19, we will conclude viewing the documentary, “Voices Across the Divide,” featuring interviews with Palestinians in the United Sates. Don Wolford will lead the class discussion this week.
The film won the 2013 Audience Award at the Boston Palestine Film Festival. At a recent conference sponsored by the Alliance of Baptists and Bright Stars of Bethlehem, some class members viewed the film and met the author and director Dr. Alice Rothchild, an obstetrician/gynecologist who retired in 2013 from her clinical practice and as Assistant Professor from Harvard Medical School. Please learn more about Dr. Rothchild and her work at http://alicerothchild.com/, and about the movie at http://voicesacrossthedivide.com/documentary/.
We’ll have the door open for you on Sunday morning, so please join us as we seek to discern how God is uniquely at work in all faith.
