Our Mission

Founded in 1999, the Christian Muslim Dialogue promotes understanding and mutual respect between Christians and Muslims. It explores historical, political and cultural factors that have shaped the current context and have contributed to the views we hold today. Through discussion and reflection, it believes that all can counter prejudices and inflammatory rhetoric and help raise the tenor of the dialogue. In the end, the CMD promotes one’s personal and collective responsibility to build a more open and accepting community at home, contributing to a more just and peaceful world.

A Prayer for Unity

Most High, Creator of All,
give us grace and wisdom
to work for civility
and respect for all people
so all Your children can worship
and walk together, united in spirit.
Strengthen the resolve of those who reject violence,
revenge and retaliation.
Support those who prize the dignity of others
as highly as their own.
Give us wisdom
to hold all creation sacred,
precious, and worthy of our care.
Cause us to consider
the price of conflict,
prejudice, suspicion and fear;
open our eyes
to see the benefits
of living as one diverse human family,
recognizing the dignity of each person.
Renew in us the resolve to dedicate our energy
to the work of building a just society
for all of every race,
language and way of life.
Make us instruments of your Shalom.
Keep us united in spirit, mercy, hope,
thanksgiving and harmony.
Give us vision
to build the culture of encounter, together.
May it be so.
