Samir Selmanovic at Princeton University, Thursday, October 22

Received this email, thought I’d pass it along to anyone interested:

“Friends who live in the vicinity of Princeton University, please come this Thursday, October 22, at 4:30, to Murray-Dodge Hall. Light refreshments and thought provoking material will be served!”

Also, here’s a video of Samir being interviewed.

“I wouldn’t be a Christian without the help of Islam, Judaism, and atheism.”  That’s probably my favorite part of the interview.  I am challenged by that and find it very thought-provoking.  For me as a Christ-follower, it points to an amazing God and the power of the Holy Spirit.  I also embrace the idea of practicing faith in an inter-connected world.  I think this is why so many find these interfaith ideas so challenging – they cannot/don’t want to accept or understand the world we live in now.

I also really like the line, “I want a better kind of certainty.  I want a certainty that does not need to argue for the absence of God in the other in order to affirm the presence of God here.”

Check him out at Princeton and hope you consider reading the book.
