"An Intrafaith Panel Dialogue on Islam"
As Houston claims its title as "the most diverse city in the United States," there is a unique opportunity to better understand the depth and breadth of that diversity, what it portends for our city, and how it reflects contemporary America. In response, Asia Society Texas Center and the Boniuk Institute for the Study and Advancement of Religious Tolerance at Rice University present an evening of intrafaith dialogue featuring four imams representing the Ahmadiyya, African-American, Shia, and Sunni traditions of Islam. Together, they will explore topics such as how cultural and generational nuances manifest themselves in various communities; the role of grace, fellowship, and forgiveness in their traditions; and what they most want those outside Islam to know about their faith.
