Finding the similarities in our different religions rather than the differences that divide us—that’s a GOOD topic.

Wilton Library will be the site of a discussion on just such a topic, with a panel made up of local religious leaders from various different faiths. The discussion, “Common Scriptures for the Common Good: Jews, Christians, and Muslims,” is a one-session Interfaith Program that will explore what is similar as opposed to what separates us in the sacred texts of our traditions with a view to the commonalities furthering interfaith dialogue in an age when that dialogue is desperately needed.

The discussion will be moderated by Rev. Mary Grace Williams from St. Matthew’s Episcopal Church. On the panel will be:  Rabbi Rachel Bearman, Temple B’nai Chaim; Rev. Dr. Jason Coker, Wilton Baptist Church; and Dr. Kareem Adeeb, American Institute for Islamic and Arabic Studies.

Registration to attend is strongly suggested. The talk is scheduled for Tuesday, March 15, at 7 p.m. at the Wilton Library Association, 137 Old Ridgefield Rd. There is no charge but donations are welcome. Click here to register.
