The Dialogue Society hosted an evening to commemorate and celebrate the life of Jesus (Peace be upon Him). The programme began with a short video clip from the film ‘The Message’ showing the first meeting between Muslims and Christians. This was followed by Jim Robinson of the Unitarian Chapel in Hampstead, talking briefly of the message that Jesus brought to mankind and the universal principles which we all need to uphold, regardless of our faith.
This was followed by Reverend Phil Hunter of Edmonton Methodist Church who spoke about how Jesus is perceived amongst Christians and the significance of his message today. Finally Mrs Ilknur Kahraman of the Dialogue Society gave a power point presentation of the story of Jesus as narrated in the Holy Qur’an. Her presentation highlighted the character of Jesus (Peace be upon Him) as described in numerous verses within the Qur’an.
The evening concluded with a joint prayer for world peace in the forthcoming New Year and guests enjoyed the Turkish cuisine prepared by volunteers.
