LIONS TO HAVE THEOLOGICAL PRESENTATION
February 25, 2014
|Emily Stetler, Assistant Professor of Theology at Mount St. Mary’s
University, Emmitsburg, will speak to the Francis Scott Key Lions Club
on Tuesday 3/25 about “Three Faiths, One God: Similarities Among
Judaism, Christianity, and Islam.” 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,
continues 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 the practices of these religions are more alike than
different, and a greater appreciation for these similarities yields a
richer understanding for not only the other religions, but one's own.
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
