Interfaith Center at the Presidio:
Unleashing the Power of Interreligious Cooperation
ICP welcomes, serves, and celebrates the diverse spiritual wisdom and faith traditions of the Bay Area and is networked with interfaith groups locally and globally. The Center’s core activities...
- Developing local and global connections, and
- Creating interfaith learning environments and resources.
Please join us for an evening of interfaith reflection and discussion with STEVEN NIGHTINGALE reading from his new book
Followed by a conversation with
Ameena Jandali, Content Director, Islamic Networks Group
Rabbi Allen Bennett, Rabbi Emeritus, Temple Israel in Alameda
The Rev. Canon Sally Bingham, President, The Regeneration Project
The brief reading will focus on the legendary convivencia—the “living together” of Moslem, Christian, and Jewish communities in Medieval Spain. It was an era of extraordinary accomplishment in science, mathematics, art, and governance. It is a brilliant historical example of the power and intelligence of interfaith alliance.
The panel will discuss the ways in which just such work is carried out today, and how it might be deepened, extended, and enriched, so as to build a foundation of hope for a peaceful future.
