Introducing Opportunities for Inter-Faith Dialogue
Scriptural Reasoning is a dynamic and evolving practice in which people of different religious commitments, usually Jews, Christians and Muslims, meet together to read and debate their sacred texts. Scriptural Reasoning allows for inter-faith conversations which are deep and focussed, lively and friendly. Participants can tackle difficult issues through the lens of the text; the goal is not agreement but rather growth in understanding one another’s traditions and deeper exploration of the texts and their possible interpretations.
The evening will consist of a panel presentation to introduce the texts, followed by discussion time in smaller groups and a coffee reception.

What is interfaith? Interfaith is a way to build bridges of understanding and knowledge between those of different cultural and religious backgrounds in order to break down prejudices and misunderstandings, working together to create an accepting and inclusive society.
Why get involved?
To meet new and interesting people.
To get to know one’s own faith on a deeper level through engagement with those of different faiths.
To challenge and explore our own preconceived notions of other traditions, particularly in areas of potential conflict.
To develop a local interfaith community.
To come together with other faiths to raise awareness of issues we care about, taking action to balance inequalities and discrimination.
