'Footsteps: A Journey in Faith'– a video for Muslims, Jews and Christians
You are invited to a brown bag lunch showing of the video "Footsteps: A Journey in Faith" – a documentary of 12 Minneapolis friends who journeyed together to Israel/Palestine.
The 12 friends were pastors of Muslim, Jewish and Christian congregations. The documentary traces their own faith journeys as they discovered their common ground and their differences.
The video was shown last month to a group of students, faculty and staff on campus, and they suggested that it was important that it be shown again to others on campus interested in interfaith questions. It is an engaging and challenging film.
The video will be shown from noon to 1:30 p.m. Friday, April 18, in Room 155, Murray-Herrick Campus Center. Please bring a bag lunch and join us! Beverages and dessert will be provided.
This event, the second in a series of informal discussions aimed at exploring the rich diversity of religious traditions on campus, is co-sponsored by the Undergraduate Student Government, the Leadership Academy, Campus Ministry, and the Office for Mission, with support from the Center for Jewish-Christian Learning and the Muslim Christian Dialogue Center.
