Muslims & Christians in Open Conversation

Got this from Marina's blog.


How Not To Be Arrogant: A Public Forum

Here's another public forum that should be of interest to you folks. Not only is the topic interesting but the fact that it is organised by a Muslim AND a Christian group is also worth mentioning.

Titled 'People Like Us:How Arrogance Divides People', this forum will be held on

Friday June 12 2009
at The Father's House,
Bangsar Lutheran Church,
23, Jalan Abdullah,
off Jalan Bangsar,

from 8.30pm to 10.00pm.

(Please visit for directions.) All are welcome.

The forum is jointly organised by the Muslim Professionals Forum and Friends in Conversation.

The speakers are Waleed Aly, a young Australian Muslim who has written a book called 'People Like Us:How Arrogance Divides Islam and the West'; Tricia Yeoh, Research Officer to the Selangor Menteri Besar's Office; and Dr. Ahmad Farouk Musa, founding member of MPF and lecturer at Monash University School of Medicine and Health Sciences. The moderator will be Rev Sivin Kit of the BLC.

For more information, please visit Rev Sivin's blog.


It should be an interesting evening, and certainly a step in the right direction in successful nation-building: being in conversation with our fellow Malaysians, regardless of race and religion, about the common good.
