Mercy Faith and culture dialogue

January 11, 2018

The Sisters of Mercy have announced a year of outreach and solidarity with focus on “education about Islam, prayer for peace in our global village, and conversations for relationship building.” The sisters said in their announcement that the gatherings are a response to America today where “our differences rather than our values define us.” The Sunday afternoon series begins Jan. 21 and will take place at Mercy Center, 2300 Adeline Drive, Burlingame. “People are invited to come together to understand each other’s perspectives,” the sisters said. “The goal is to listen respectfully across the divides of faith and culture.” Small groups will be led through a structured process by a guide. Ground rules include being curious and open to learning; showing respect and suspending judgment; looking for common ground and appreciating differences; being authentic, and welcoming that from others; being purposeful and to the point. The program includes an Interfaith Prayer for Peace on Jan. 28 and May 20, a session on Islamic art on April 15.
