Exploring Islam – Sept. 26, 2017 PowerPoint & Audio Presentation

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7lw44DvSXLo

Presenter: Dr. Michelle Rebidoux, PhD, Professor of Religious Studies at MUN and Professor of Ethics at Queen’s College Faculty of Theology.

As the second largest and the fastest growing religion in the world, Islam is quickly becoming a global force. Nevertheless, many people, including many Christians, know little about the core beliefs and practices of this tradition which, as the third of the Abrahamic religions, shares much in common with Christianity. Indeed, popular media portrayals of Islam continue to fuel misunderstandings. This session is designed to help participants understand and appreciate the religious beliefs and practices of the vast majority of Muslims, who detest violence and terrorism as much as any typical Christian and Canadian. It will also address some of the factors involved in the rise of radical Islam in today’s global society.

You are invited to a  Memorial Liturgy to celebrate the life of Rev’d Dr. Alexander (Randy) Daley at Queen’s College Chapel, 210 Prince Philip Drive at 11:00 a.m. On September 22, 2017.  This liturgy is arranged to coincide with Randy’s Requiem Liturgy in Dedham, Massachusetts.

Randy was a friend of many clergy in Newfoundland and Labrador.  He was wonderful friend and benefactor of Queen’s College. He was generous and unassuming in his support, as well as warm and loyal in his friendship.

We extend an invitation to friends of Randy, who would like to attend the Memorial Liturgy at our Queen’s College Chapel. Please pass along this invitation to others who might wish to attend.

  • Rev’d.  Dr. Boyd Morgan, a former Provost of Queen’s College will preside.

We invite you stay for lunch following the liturgy. At lunch we will have opportunity for some less formal tributes and reminiscence of Randy, in the tradition of his Irish heritage. Please RSVP to queens@mun.ca  to advise us if you will be attending the liturgy and staying for lunch.
