This Afternoon, Old Lyme Church Hosts ‘Honest Conversations with Muslim Neighbors’

The First Congregational Church of Old Lyme (FCCOL) will hold “Honest Conversations with Muslim Neighbors” – a thought-provoking discussion among area residents – arranged by the Connecticut Council for Interreligious Understanding (CCIU), the Muslim Coalition of Connecticut and the Hartford Seminary – on Sunday, March 11, at 2 p.m., in the Sheffield Auditorium.

During the event, local residents will hear from – and can ask questions of – other Connecticut residents who are Muslims, and who are articulate about their faith and eager to deepen community perceptions and understanding of their faith.

The church and the event organizers believe that together, through conversation, a more peaceful world can be promoted for everyone.

The event is free and open to the public.

The First Congregational Church of Old Lyme is a community of people of faith who care about the world in which we live, whether it’s right outside our door or half a world away. The church strives to be a place of grace, welcoming everyone, regardless of theological expression. The church Constitution states that “each member shall have the undisturbed right to follow the word of God according to the dictates of his or her own conscience, under the enlightenment of the Holy Spirit.”
