Invitation from Interfaith Glasgow

Interfaith Glasgow  |  Flourishing through dialogue…

Dear members of the Church of Scotland in Glasgow,

I am writing with an invitation to take part in an exciting new initiative in Glasgow involving dialogue between Jews, Christians and Muslims.
I work for Interfaith Glasgow, a project of Interfaith Scotland which aims to bring Glasgow’s diverse faith communities together for friendship, dialogue and co-operation. In May this year we ran an event introducing a particular practice of interfaith dialogue known as Scriptural Reasoning which is becoming increasingly popular in the UK and elsewhere amongst religious leaders and lay people alike.
Scriptural Reasoning brings together small groups of Jews, Christians and Muslims in the close reading of their sacred texts for the purposes of building understanding and friendship rather than consensus. You don’t have to be a scholar to take part, all that is needed is some familiarity with your scriptures in a way that makes a difference to your life.
Open House (a Scottish Catholic Magazine), printed a short article about Scriptural Reasoning and our introductory event and you can read it here:http://www.openhousescotland.co.uk/interfaith-dialogue-difference/

Scriptural Reasoning was received very well by those who attended – for some it was different to the kind of interfaith dialogue they had heard about or experienced before – it was felt to be “much richer and more purposeful.” As a result of their enthusiasm a regular group will be meeting in Glasgow every 6 weeks on a weekday evening in the community spaces of different places of worship.
The first such meeting will take place on Wednesday 20th of August at 6pm at Masjid Al-Furqan (Mosque), 19 Carrington Street, G4 9AJ
We would be delighted to hear from you if you are interested in attending.   You needn’t commit to a regular meeting – feel free to come and try it out and see if it’s for you.
Please feel free to pass on this invitation to anyone who may be interested – however it is important that anyone who wishes to attend lets us know in advance.I look forward to hearing from you.
