A rich story of peacemaking that will provide the foundation for the series is the historic, 1219 visit between St. Francis and the Egyptian Muslim leader, Sultan Al-Malik Al-Mamil. In this story the meeting between St. Francis and the Sultan prepares a pathway of peacemaking through dialogue that is applicable in today’s world. Each of the three parts will include prayer, input, and discussion. The three sessions will be progressive in nature and include:
Session 1 – Peacemaking: Opening Minds and Hearts
Session 2 – Peacemaking: Meeting the Other
Session 3 – Peacemaking: Crossing a Threshold
Suggested Donation - $45.00 for the series of three sessions (Fee assistance available)
