The Mayor’s Interfaith Advisory Council, in collaboration with the Interfaith Alliance and Religion & Society Center, presents:
No Compulsion in Religion:
The Challenge of Faith & Freedom
Thursday, September 10, 2015, 6:00 pm
Goodwin Memorial Baptist Church
2447 Green Street, Harrisburg, PA 17110
We live in a multi-faith society. Yet, historically, our faith traditions have not taught us how to let others be themselves.
Accordingly, compulsion has become a default stance.
It’s important to remember that there are teachings in our traditions which remind us that there is no compulsion in religion.
Or is there? Is there such a teaching in our traditions?
And, if so, what is its application to society?
Post-keynote panel discussion including:
QASIM RASHID is an author, attorney, and national spokesperson for Ahmadiyya Muslim Community, USA. Qasim’s new book, “#TalkToMe: Changing the Narrative on Race, Religion, & Education” is a non-fiction memoir from inspiring thought leaders on how the power of dialogue can overcome racism, xenophobia, intolerance, and violence.
There is no charge for this event.
Light refreshments will be served.
