The Children

of Abraham Project

There is an interfaith event that is taking place at St. Francis of Assisi in Youngsville on Saturday, Sept. 7, starting at 6 p.m. The premise behind The Children of Abraham Project is to bring the three Abrahamic faiths Judaism, Islam and Christianity together in open dialogue to educate people and combat prejudices in our communities.

The idea for The Children of Abraham Project was developed as I was examining the Episcopal Baptismal Covenant. I felt that I was not fully living into the promises I made. The question from the Baptismal Covenant that really struck home was “Will you strive for justice and peace among all people, and respect the dignity of every human being?” I felt that I was not fulfilling this vow by not responding to injustices that I see in our society, but more importantly in our own communities.

In offering this event to our community, our hope is to bring change and reconciliation to the world – one mind, one heart at a time. Racism, prejudice, and violence are all-to-common, even in America. Finding peace among and within our communities cannot be successful without each of us working together to defeat hatred, injustice, and the stereotypical images that permeate our communities.

There was an event held at St. Francis last October, we had over 45 people in attendance. The feedback that we obtained was very good, and we were encouraged to have another event. One of the topics that seemed to be of interest was the roles of the husband and wife in a marriage.

Speaking on behalf of the Jewish prospective will be Harvey Stone, a practicing Jew from the Warren area who is well versed in his religion and traditions. He is a structural engineer who owns and operates a successful business in the Warren area.

Speaking from Muslim prospective will be Sam Qadri from the Jamestown Islamic Society. Mr. Qadri is a teacher at Jamestown High School (NY) and a professor at the Jamestown Community College.

I am a parishioner at St. Francis of Assisi Episcopal Church in Youngsville. I am also a Postulant for Holy Orders in the Episcopal Church. Our goal is to inform, educate and combat prejudices.

There are also plans in the works to hold events in Franklin and in the Hermitage area.

There will be some refreshments and finger foods.
