The LOTUS Center for All Faiths (LCAF) will present the film, “Three Faiths, One God: Judaism, Christianity, Islam” on Monday, April 8, 2019 at the Vidya Bhavan Library in Yogaville.
This ground-breaking documentary compares similarities and differences in religious beliefs and practices that Islam has with Christianity and Judaism. It also examines how people of faith and goodwill are transcending barriers to understanding and respect.
It thoughtfully examines the religious beliefs and practices shared by Jews, Christians and Muslims to illustrate how many in the Abrahamic faith communities are dealing with historical conflicts and charts their dedication to facilitating understanding and respect. “Three Faiths, One God” captures a broad range of voices and ideas of ordinary people and respected scholars in the interfaith field. The program contrasts the religious practices of the three faiths, including the rituals of fasting and marriage. Later, the program features a dramatic and moving example of reconciliation as the father of murdered Wall Street Journal reporter opens a dialogue between Muslims and Jews to create better understanding between the two faiths. In the same spirit, a conflict-resolution workshop engages in an intensive dialogue as they attempt to dispel myths, misconceptions and stereotypes about each others’ religion.
The film aired on PBS and a trailer for the film can be seen here.
