Christian-Muslim series slated

The Commission on Christian-Muslim Relations and The Muslim-Catholic Alliance will present the following series of Monday sessions on Islam and Christianity. Sessions will be held from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Islamic Center, 727 Westfall Road, Brighton.

The sessions are:

* Feb. 21: “Faith and Worship in Islam,” which will address how Muslim beliefs affect Muslims’ daily lives.

* Feb. 28: “Muhammad and the Qur’an,” which will address what the message of Islam’s holy book is, and the way Prophet Muhammad delivered it.

* March 7: “Jihad and Extremism: Christianity and Islam,” which will address the word “jihad” or “striving.” Despite its current association with terrorism, jihad has both spiritual and political dimensions relevant to Islam and Christianity.

* March 14: “Violence and Terrorism: Christianity and Islam,” which will address both religions’ perspectives on violence and terrorism.

All sessions are free and open to the public.
