Who We Are

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

ContinuingĀ  the Conversation

A Common Word Alberta is sponsoring a couple of one hour Zoom meetings on the first Tuesdays of March and April 2021, where Christians and Muslims can connect over their faith’sĀ approach to interfaith interactions.

We’re happy to have you join us for the upcoming two “Continuing the Conversation” mini dialogues. The outline for the remaining two on March 2nd & April 6th, 2021 will give Christians and Muslims an opportunity to connect over their faith traditions teaching and practice of hospitality (making room for the other in our context) and embassy (entering the other’s context to bridge).  

Here’s the Zoom URL and Meeting ID for March 2 (7 p.m.) & April 6 (7 p.m.):
