Interfaith Evening of Reflection: Our Journey – Adventures in Search of God and Self
October 30 @ 5:30 pm - 9:00 pm$50
Guest Speakers: Mr. Kemal Korucu, Rabbi Michael Bernstein, and Fr. Bill Noe, SJ
Join Kemal Korucu, Rabbi Michael Bernstein, and Fr. Bill Noe, S.J., in a wide-ranging conversation about the real interpersonal relationship with God that Islam, Judaism, and Christianity open up for those who practice these faiths. We will explore how the faithful practitioner’s experience of God and Self develops and changes along the way. Our conversation will help us to deepen our appreciation of the common human search for God and Self, and to grow in friendship with those who practice faith traditions other than our own.
A light dinner will be offered at 5.30pm, along with friendship and conversation across the dinner table, followed by the evening program from 6.30pm. There will be an opportunity for Q&A and dialogue throughout the evening.
Kemal Korucu is a leader of his community and involved in interfaith activities on behalf of the Atlantic Institute representing the Turkish Muslim community in Atlanta. He is often asked to speak to speak at interfaith programs around Atlanta and is a longtime friend of Ignatius House.
