First Church Farmington and the Farmington Valley American Muslim Center invite churches of the Connecticut UCC to attend a special fall conference on Christian-Muslim relations. The event will highlight better understanding of Islam and ways in which Muslims and Christians can come together as partners in today’s world. Professor Miroslav Volf of Yale University and Muslim scholar/activist  Dr. Mihan Mirza will give keynote addresses. Break-out groups will focus on special topics such as immigration of Muslims to Connecticut, women in religious leadership, keeping youth involved in our respective communities of faith, and how to address difficult issues such as radical extremism in Islam and Christianity. The program will begin Friday night at the Islamic Center in Avon and continue on Saturday at First Church in Farmington.
