LOUISVILLE — In its commitment to provide a variety of opportunities and platforms designed to build and foster relationships with people of other religious traditions, the Presbyterian Mission Agency’s office of Interfaith Relations is continuing its new Facebook Live series, “Third Thursdays—Multifaith Conversations on Concerns of Our Time.”
Today at noon EDT on the PC(USA)’s Facebook page, ruling elder Rick Ufford-Chase, associate for interfaith formation, welcomed as his dialogue partners two Hartford Seminary D.Min. students, the Rev. Tracy Mehr-Muska and Imam Sami A. Aziz.
Mehr-Muska, a teaching elder in the PC(USA), currently serves as the Protestant chaplain at Wesleyan University. Aziz, the founder of Common Ground Institute & Services—an Islamic consulting firm dedicated to educating the public on Islam and collaborating for peace—also serves as the Muslim chaplain for Wesleyan University and as the imam for Bloomfield Muslim Community Center.
The video is available for viewing on the PC(USA)’s Facebook page.
The next installment in the “Third Thursdays” series will be live on Facebook at noon EDT April 20.
