The Ordinary Life Women invite all women to lunch with them and their Muslim and Jewish women friends for a conversation about Moses, Jesus, and Mohammed.

This conversation is part of an intermittent series begun last fall with members of the Sisterhood of Salaam Shalom about what our faiths mean to us and sharing what makes us human.


“Our Muslim friends shared with us how important non judgmental attitudes and sharing love are to them,” noted Barbara Bruckner, the organizer of this series. “Come join in the conversation,” she added. “You will find new understanding and appreciation for the many things we share in common.”

Bring a friend and food to share to Fondren Lounge on Thursday, November 8, at noon.

The organizer has suggested that those planning to attend read these meditations from Richard Rohr’s Center for Action and Contemplation:
