The Lutheran Theological Southern Seminary Lectures and Events Committee and our neighbors at Masjid As-Salaam invite you to a timely Town Hall Meeting on Monday, Dec. 7, for conversation about the Islam religion and the true beliefs of moderate Muslims in light of current world events. A panel of clergy from Christian and Islamic faiths will lead a discussion of the relationships between the two religions, including commonalities and differences, and how these influence how we live in the world we all share. Participating are Dr. Clay Schmit and Dr. James Thomas of LTSS, Imams Omar Shaheed (Masjid As-Salaam of Columbia SC), Dr. Mohamad Dahoudi (Islamic Society of Augusta, GA), and Khalil Akbar (Masjid Ash-Shaheed of Charlotte, NC), and Sister Nadirah Shabazz (Masjid As-Salaam, Columbia, SC).
The Town Hall Meeting will be held from 7 to 8:30 p.m. on Monday, Dec. 7, in Stavros Auditorium on the LTSS campus. It is free and open to the public.
