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 Chairman Darlene Aulls at 301/662-2360.
