As the official representative of A Common Word in North America, the Prince Alwaleed Bin Talal Center for Muslim-Christian Understanding at Georgetown University will host a follow-up meeting to its successful conference A Common Word: A Global Agenda for Change, held in October of 2009. This year’s conference will explore concrete initiatives undertaken by practitioners from Muslim and Christian faith communities, in hopes of going beyond theological discussions and highlighting the “so-what” factor of this important initiative. Participants will present significant projects taking place on both a local and international scale, demonstrating the breadth and success of outcomes that can emerge as a result of multi-faith cooperation and the key principles outlined in A Common Word.
