Who We Are

Welcome to the website for A Common Word Alberta – Christian Muslim Dialogue.

We as ACWAB address this letter to  you who are part of the Islamic community around the world.
 
The shooting last Friday has no doubt brought to you and so many others, myself included, significant distress, disappointment, and discouragement to hear unfortunately once again of another example of religious bigotry in the death and injury of numerous believers in New Zealand.
 
When I heard about this horrible situation, I discovered myself feeling numb, considering the ongoing persecution and terrorizing of people of our various faith communities throughout the world.
 
Again my sincere condolences as you/we mourn with those lost in this senseless action.
 
In solidarity,  A Common Word Alberta Committee
Letter penned by Bev Sesink, a committee member.
