A Project to foster honest, critical, and respectful dialogue between Abrahamic Faith
The name of the project shall be The Abrahamic Faith Forum
The Abrahamic Faith Forum
Sharing our Faith, this commitment is grounded particularly in Christian-Muslim relations, but also more broadly in relations between the three Abrahamic Faiths Judaism, Christianity and Islam. It has led us to a shared commitment to the values of dialogue across the curriculum, in our research and dialogue as an academic method. In this perspective we are undertaking this project called Abrahamic Faiths Forum, for Ambassadors for Peace.
Abrahamic Faiths Forum
Queensland 's Abrahamic faiths were a united front achieving positive outcomes at the Abrahamic Faiths Forum at Parliament House in Brisbane 7 February.
Almost 200 religious representatives, community leaders and government representatives shared experiences and positive dialogue that would ultimately result in building a greater understanding of each other within the broader community.
Some of the recommendations included:
Greater interaction between young people from the three faith groups – the Christian, Islamic and Jewish women's groups have agreed to host a function in the near future to start the process.
Improve relationships and increase contact between the leaders and grassroots members of the faiths groups.
Engaging in joint action to resolve critical social issues including climate change and human rights.
Teaching non-violent communication to young people.
Sandy McCutcheon noted ABC broadcaster and author, facilitated the day long event.
The Keynote Speakers addressed the theme promoting community harmony in times of ease and difficulties, their speeches are available below:
ISLAM and the Abrahamic Faith MYTH
(Discussion opposing the myth)
Lubar Institute for the Study of Abrahamic Religions
Judaism, Christianity, and Islam (as well as the Baha'i Faith) comprise a family of religions. A number of terms recognize their historico-theological links: the popular label "Peoples of the Book" underlines the central role scripture plays among their adherents, while scholars of religion sometimes categorize them as the "three major monotheistic faiths." The term "Abrahamic" has advantages over both usages; it focuses on a more specific affinity than does the first and avoids the categorical and interpretive controversies that may arise over the second while emphasizing the paramount place that Abraham holds in all three traditions.
INTERNATIONAL COUNCIL OF CHRISTIANS AND JEWS
The International Abrahamic Forum
The International Abrahamic Forum is an expression of the ICCJ's renewed commitment to the Jewish-Christian -Muslim dialogue.
Already in 1995, the International Council of Christians and Jews decided at its Annual General Meeting to establish the "Abrahamic Forum" - a trilateral Jewish-Christian-Muslim committee.
