Interfaith Conversation Series: Dr. Ann Holmes Redding
March 29 @ 6:30 PM - 8:30 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. Four Wednesday evening Interfaith Conversations will take place in March. Each will begin with a simple soup supper at 6:30 p.m., followed by a structured conversation at 7 p.m.
Anne Holmes Redding is a former Episcopal priest, who was defrocked in April 2009 for having become a Muslim in March 2006. She grew up in Cheyney, PA. Her father was a noted civil rights lawyer in Delaware. Redding identifies with both faiths “100 percent,” explaining that this is possible in the same way that she can be both an African American and a woman. Her remarks have evoked excitement and controversy among both the Episcopal and Muslim communities. She continues to worship in the Episcopal Church, as well as with Al-Islam Center of Seattle.
