Eat with Muslims: Fathia Absie & Ilays Aden

May 20, 2017 @ 4:30 pm - 7:00 pm

St. Luke’s interfaith conversations provide a safe space to listen to and learn from leaders and people of other spiritual/faith traditions. These evenings foster conversation, celebrate our differences, and develop tools to strengthen the whole. Eat With Muslims is a program where we sit down to a Middle Eastern dinner and share dialogue and stories from each other’s perspectives. We will meet downstairs in the Guild Hall. The only thing you need to bring is yourself.

Ms. Absie is a Somali writer and filmmaker. She has been featured on PBS programs, advocating for community dialogue and understanding. “We eat together and share stories because, as Will Rogers once said, ‘A stranger is just a friend you haven’t met yet.’”

Ms. Aden is a Somali-American who has studied Economics and African Studies at the University of Washington, and who has recently finished law school at American University. She has advocated for immigrants and asylum seekers from all different backgrounds.

Please RSVP by Wednesday, May 17 so we know much food to prepare. RSVP to Betsy Teays at [email protected] or 206-434-0175.
