Archbishop takes part in interfaith lecture
Archbishop Christopher Prowse took part in a special interfaith public lecture last week at the Australian Centre for Christianity and Culture (ACCC).
The Archbishop joined Georgetown University’s Professor John Esposito and Islamic academic Zuleyha Keskin for the December 3 lecture, which was titled, ‘Uniting or dividing? Christians and Muslims in our globalised world’.
“The night was well attended and broader perspectives on how we can act locally, but at the same time, think internationally in these troubled days with the radicalisation of religions, was a common feature,” he said.
The event was organised by Bluestar Intercultural Centre, and was sponsored by the ACCC, Australian Catholic University, and the Archdiocese.
“I was delighted that a national Muslim group… asked if we could co-host the event,” the Archbishop said.
“In the light of what’s happened with terrorist attacks, particularly in Paris, the Archdiocese was delighted to be one of the sponsors.”
