Our Next event



Embracing Christian-Muslim Dialogue


A panel of ordained and lay Christians from several different Christian denominations will share how they became involved in dialogue with their Muslim friends and neighbors, how they remain active in Christian-Muslim dialogue and events, and how it has enriched their own lives and broadened their understanding of what it means to be a faithful person. 


The Reverend Carol Ruthven will moderate a panel discussion.

Panelists include:

* Mark Sloss, Pastor at Faith Lutheran Church

* Kory Wilcoxson, Senior Minister at Crestwood Christian Church

* Alan Fryar, an associate professor in the University of Kentucky Department of Earth and Environmental Sciences

* Nancy Jo Kemper, minister of New Union Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in Woodford County, Ky

* Jim Smith, DVM, retired from Hagyard Equine Medical Institute
