Preview: Interfaith Listening Project

Listen to this story
A Christian and Muslim from Indonesia will speak about interfaith relations in their nation during a forum tonight (7 pm) at the Potsdam Mosque. Two years ago the Presbyterian Church of Sackets Harbor hosted a team from Jordan. It was developed in response to heightened interfaith tensions that arose after the terrorist attacks of Sept. 11th. This year the Presbytery of Northern New York is hosting another round of interfaith dialogues from Watertown to Plattsburgh. It's part of the Presbyterian Church's Interfaith Listening Project. Dr. Zakaria Ngelow, Rector of the Theological Seminary of Eastern Indonesia and Dr. Muhammad Machasin, professor of history of Islamic Culture, are visiting schools, houses of faith and community groups to explore and demonstrate how people of different faiths can learn from each other. Todd Moe talks with Dr. Ngelow about the importance of the interfaith listening teams.
