You are warmly invited to a public lecture by Professor Peter Riddell on the topic Issues in Christian-Muslim Relations: The questions Christians ask on Wednesday 23 August at our Henderson campus.
With New Zealand becoming an increasingly multi-ethnic society, Christians are interacting more with those from a Muslim faith in their workplaces and neighbourhoods. The activities of self-proclaimed Islamic terrorist groups have caused increasing Islamophobia in Western countries. Is such a fear valid or misplaced? Are there false assumptions about Islam that we need to dismantle? How should Christians befriend our Muslim neighbours?
While Professor Riddell is at Laidlaw teaching a postgraduate course on Engaging Islam, we have invited him to share to a wider audience at this public lecture.
So, get your home group together, or just come along yourself, to what promises to be an informative evening!
|When||7:30pm - 9:00pm|
|Cost||FREE & open to the public|
|RSVP||by Monday 21 August to firstname.lastname@example.org|
