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 Lions or on becoming a Lion, visit or contact Membership Chairman Darlene Aulls at 301/662-2360.
