SYMPOSIUM: Christian-Muslim Relations in a Year of Mercy
"The Quality of Mercy is not Strain’d"
Thursday March 3rd, 2016, a Christian-Muslim symposium was held by St. Michael’s College, Dominican Institute of Toronto and Intercultural Dialogue Institute(IDI). The timely theme of the evening was Mercy within the Qur’an and the Bible, as well as in the larger Christian and Muslim literature and communities—accounting for variances among different communities within their larger faith groups.
