2021 Luce-Hartford Conference in Christian-Muslim Relations

The 2021 Luce-Hartford Conference in Christian-Muslim Relations will focus on the current state of Muslim and Christian relationships within congregations, masjids, Islamic centers, and social services in the midst of the COVID-19 health care crisis and the longstanding pandemics of racial injustice, inter-ethnic and interreligious tensions.

Our keynote speaker is Dr. Kameelah Mu’Min Rashad, who will speak on “The Light of Faith: Spiritual Resilience & Coping in the COVID Age”

The conference will address:

  • How COVID-19 has disrupted and impacted previous Muslim-Christian relationships, or how it has galvanized communities to new activities,
  • Methods that Christian and Muslim communities have developed to continue providing interreligious opportunities,
  • The role of Racism and Islamophobia on African-American Muslim and Christian communities,
  • Interfaith engagement and opportunities that have responded to religious nationalisms, and
  • Opportunities for interfaith networking
