Screening & Discussion of the film, “Same God”
Time & Location
About the Event
Background: On Sunday, February 28, 2016 DuPage United held an event “We the People - Know your Muslim Neighbor” kick-off to the year long DuPage United Solidarity Campaign. Over 850 people engaged in conversations between Muslims and non-Muslims as we shared our stories. Together we also listened to speakers including Dr. Larycia Hawkins. She was the Wheaton College professor, who had posted a photo of herself wearing a hijab on Facebook, accompanied by these words: "I love my Muslim neighbor because s/he deserves love by virtue of her/his human dignity….we worship the same God." The controversy over her actions—and her employer's response to them—exposed deep rifts among Christians over race, Islam, religious freedom, and politics.
