Many major conflicts in the world today have some link with religion. Is the dialogue between religions not working? Although people have been communicating across religions and cultures for centuries, harmony and peace remain beyond our grasp. Perhaps we need to examine the ‘baggage’ we bring to interfaith dialogue? In this event, we will discover how people from different faith traditions can communicate in a way that is transforming and enriching to everyone. We will be guided through a passage from the Qur’an in step-by-step contemplation. In this way, we will get a taste for this new way of interfaith dialogue.
Herman Roborgh spent many years working as a missionary in mainly Muslim countries including Indonesia and Pakistan. He studied Islam at a University in India before returning to Australia in 2007. He is now engaged in interfaith research projects and lives in Melbourne.
