This first panel on the second day of "A Common Word Between Us and You" brought together religious leaders to discuss the sources and limits of pluralism in Islam and Christianity. Panelists examined how these sources and limits impact Muslim-Christian relations and sought to find ways these two traditions can counter prejudices towards one another.
Moderated by Sarah Joseph, editor of emel Magazine.
Father Thomas Michel, SJ, formerly of the Vatican Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue;
Bishop Munib Younan, Bishop of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Jordan and the Holy Land;
Dr. Ingrid Mattson, President of the Islamic Society of North America;
Dr. Joel C. Hunter, Senior Pastor of Northland, A Church Distributed.
The Common Word conference was sponsored by the Office of the President and the Prince Alwaleed bin Talal Center for Muslim-Christian Understanding at Georgetown University, as well as the Royal Aal al-Bayt Institute for Islamic Thought of Jordan. The panel was held in Gaston Hall.
