Midweek Dialogues

SPIN Midweek Interfaith Dialogues continue on the theme: Religious Traditions Confronting Pluralism: A Multi-faith Exploration and Dialogue. On ThursdayOct. 9, 12 noon to 2:00 p.m. three religious leaders will lead a dialogue session addressing how they and their traditions view and relate to other traditions.  Imam Samir Saikali, Islamic Institute of Minnesota/Mosque Assalam; Rev. John Matthews, Grace Lutheran Church/Apple Valley; and Mr. Richard Halvorson, Counselor in the Temple Presidency, Church of Jesus Christ-Latter Day Saints (Mormon), will share their views in dialogue, followed by large group dialogue with them and small group dialogue among all present. Questions such as: In what sense can one tradition be considered superior to, or superseding, others? How do you personally, and how does your tradition, view and relate to those of other religious traditions?  Sessions are free, open to all and will be held at the Saint Paul Area Council of Churches, 1671 Summit Ave., St. Paul, MN 55105. Doors open at 11:30 a.m., light refreshments/beverages provided; bag lunches welcome.
