    An Inter Faith Week celebration: Putting the spotlight on inter faith activism - a webinar for schools

    The Faith & Belief Forum has worked for over 20 years to build good relations between people of all faiths and beliefs, and to create a society where difference is celebrated. We are offering secondary schools across the UK an exciting webinar designed especially for Inter Faith Week, using our unique methodology. The Webinar will allow pupils to hear from a diverse group of speakers who will present, reflect on and discuss their own personal experiences of interfaith activism and social action, as well as how their own faith and belief has influenced them on this path. There will also be opportunity to ask questions. This session will empower young people to:

    Celebrate Inter Faith Week and understand the importance of collective community action, building bridges and paths to understanding
    Understand the intersectionality of identity through the use of personal stories
    See effective interfaith dialogue modelled
    Reflect on their own experiences in relation to this topic
    Challenge assumptions and stereotypes
    Increase their religious literacy, empathy and skills for dialogue…

    Public Lecture: ‘How to think about Muslim Difference’ by Youshaa Patel

    The Song School, 109A Iffley Road, Oxford, OX4 1EH. 17.00 – 19.00
    Online and in-person event hosted by the Centre for Muslim-Christian Studies Oxford - Drawing on his recently published book, The Muslim Difference (Yale 2022), Youshaa Patel explores the vexing Islamic discourse of reprehensible imitation (tashabbuh), a discourse that enjoins ordinary believers to embody and display their religious difference from Christians, Jews and others in public life. Moderating cross-cultural imitation and assimilation was as crucial to the construction of Muslim identity and alterity during Islam's formative period as it is today. This lecture situates the religious discourse within Islamic scripture and tradition, casting new light on a long history of how small differences have defined Muslim interfaith encounters.…
