Common Ground: A Baptist-Muslim Conversation

Saturday, April 20, Central will host a conversation between Baptists and Muslims at Prairie Baptist Church, Prairie Village, KS.  The conversation is being held at the request of the General Secretary of the American Baptist Churches-USA, Dr. Roy Medley.  It is one of three such events being held by schools with ties to ABC-USA with the goal to “create an atmosphere where these two faith communities can live in peace and respect with one another and promote the common good in the society in which we live and in the broader world.” 

The Committee on Christian Unity and Interfaith Relations of ABC-USA is partnering with Central for this significant event which is part of a national dialogue between the Muslim and Christian communities on “The Love of God and Pathways to Peace.”
