LIONS GIVEN THEOLOGICAL PRESENTATION
March 25, 2014
|The Francis Scott Key Lions Club recently heard a presentation on
“Three Faiths, One God: Similarities Among Judaism, Christianity, and
Islam.” The speaker, Emily Stetler, an assistant professor of theology
at Mt. St. Mary’s University, Emmitsburg, is originally from York, PA,
and has studied at the University of Pennsylvania, Trinity College
Dublin, and Notre Dame. Conflict, both ancient and contemporary, falling
along religious lines, may give the impression that harmony among
religions is an impossibility; in particular, relations among Jews,
Christians, and Muslims has been and, at times and in places, continue
to be politically charged, with tensions sometimes flaring into
violence. Yet Judaism, Christianity, and Islam share common roots, and
their traditions show a strong family resemblance. Both the teachings
and practices of these religions are more alike than different. All
three religions place an importance on the virtue of hospitality; all
are Abrahamic religions, tracing back to Abraham (or Ibrahim in Islam);
all share the same God, the same common geography, and the same sacred
history. All three faiths have a structure of formal prayers at set
times but also allow for spontaneous prayer; all have an ideal of
treating others with grace, compassion, and justice.
Shown with Stetler is FSK Lions President Paul Gray.
The FSK Lions meet the second and fourth Tuesdays of each month at 6:30 p.m.
at the Barbara Fritchie Candystick Restaurant, 1513 West Patrick Street,
Frederick. Dinner is $16.50 a person. For additional information on the FSK
Lions or on becoming a Lion, visit www.fsklions.org or contact Membership
