A few days after a series of terrorist attacks devastated France and Lebanon, Muslim and Christian leaders gathered in Paris on Nov. 17 for an evening of discussions about peacemaking efforts and the role of religion in education, promoting dialogue and bringing an end to violence around the world.
The event was hosted by the Cathedral of the Holy Trinity (Anglican/Episcopal) in Paris, and led by a panel of Muslim theologians who are members of the World Union of Experts of Islam for Peace and Against Violence. Roman Catholic and Protestant leaders also attended the gathering.
The evening was held at the initiative of Jean Maher, president of the Franco-Egyptian Association for Human Rights, at the invitation of Bishop Pierre Whalon of the Convocation of Episcopal Churches in Europe.
