What christianity can learn from Islam
Panel discussion with theologian Ralf K. Wüstenberg and Imam Osman Örs
More than half of Germans feel threatened by Islam, according to a survey conducted by the Bertelsmann Stiftung in 2015. „Islam is being highly instrumentalized,“ says theologian Ralf K. Wüstenberg from the European University in Flensburg, who also taught for two years at Muslim College in Cambridge. „But Islamist terror has nothing to do with Islam.“ The society should concern itself with the contents of this religion in order to be able to look behind the facade. Wüstenberg proposes to approach Islam with curiosity and empathy.
In a conversation with Osman Örs, Imam of the House of One, who will also give an insight in Muslim live in Germany, Wüstenberg wants to broaden the view to the youngest of the Abrahamitic religions.
The discussion will be moderated by Esther Hirsch, Jewish cantor of the House of One.
Where? Pavillion of the House of One Petriplatz, Berlin-Mitte
When? Thursday, October 18, 2018 at 7 p.m.
