My Neighbor - A Gift of God

Relating to those who are different from us


June 20-22, 2008

Celebration Center, Aliquippa, PA


Events in the USA and Internationally, including 9/11, have forced many of us to consider, and to reconsider, our attitudes and opinions about “the other” regarding race, ethnicity, culture and religion. Many of us who previously felt secure within the realm of those “like us” are increasingly challenged to think about and even interact with those who differ from ourselves.

What does the Christian tradition and spirituality have to offer us in our quest to be faithful to God, as we understand and know God, and yet to be appreciative of those whose faith and practice are so different from our own? This conference guides participants through a process of reflecting on and discussing some of the core precepts of Christian faith and spirituality to work towards responsible, practical responses to our current reality.

Speaker: The Rev. Masud Ibn Syedullah, TSSF
The Rev. Masud Ibn Syedullah, TSSF, is an Episcopal priest and Pastor of the Church of the Atonement, Bronx, New York. Born into an interfaith family (Christian and Islamic), and a professed member and pastoral officer of The Third Order, Society of Saint Francis, he has acquired a profound appreciation for the many ways people experience and relate to God. His work invites persons to discover the everywhereness of God – the ways God can be experienced in persons and places beyond ones expectations. He serves as a member of the Liturgical Commission and was recently appointed Chair of the Episcopal-Muslim Relations Committee of The Episcopal Diocese of New York.
