Ethics: Islamic & Christian - How Do They Relate?

Date: Friday, April 25, 2014
Time: 11:30 a.m.–1:30 p.m
Location: Alumni Hall, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary
               130 Essex Rd, South Hamilton, MA 01982

Description: Is there any common ground between Christian ethics and Islamic ethics? This is certainly an interesting and important theological issue. But what about the practical level of daily life, politics, commerce, and culture - can Christians make common cause with Muslims in a way that glorifies God and brings some salt and light to our violent, cantankerous, conflicted world today? Are there irresolvable differences? 

Speakers: Bernard Adeney-Risakotta, Farsijana Adeney-Risakotta, Paul Martindale

Religion & Work

Date: Saturday, April 26, 2014
Time: 9:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m.
Location: Kaiser Chapel, Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary
               130 Essex Rd, South Hamilton, MA 01982

Description: What do our world's religious traditions have to contribute to our workplaces and marketplaces? All too often religion is viewed as a negative and divisive force, an occasion for disagreement, a distraction at best in our workplaces and businesses. The reality is that these traditions contain many great insights, high ideals, and wise practical guidance for the work lives of their adherents. 

You are invited to a conversation about religion, work, and business in which our quest is to listen to each other and to our traditions for constructive, positive contributions to our thinking about work purposes, values, ethics, and practices.

Sarbpreet Singh (Sikhism)
