Dialogues on Race and Religion: Muslim-Christian Dialogue

Cathedral House Conference Room

Join the Rev. Masud Ibn Syedullah, a priest in the Episcopal Diocese of New York and one of the founding members of the Episcopal-Muslim Relations Committee, for a discussion on how to promote better understanding between Christians and Muslims. An African-American born into a family with a Christian mother and a Muslim father, Father Syedullah has developed a keen awareness of and sensitivity for interfaith concerns. Much of his ministry involves bridge building among people of different faith traditions, and helping Christians to understand their call to be in positive relationship with people of other faiths. He is the Founder and Director of Roots & Branches: Programs for Spiritual Growth, providing an array of conferences, retreats, pilgrimages, and classes designed to offer guidance to those who seek to be more rooted in The Source, that they might be more fully themselves and offer Life-giving service to others. He is a member of the Third Order, Society of Saint Francis, an Anglican Christian community inspired by the life and witness of St. Francis of Assisi, and Fr. Syedullah’s ministry emphasizes themes of reconciliation, peace-making, social justice, and respect for all of God’s creation.
