Executive Dining Room
Millions of Muslims have migrated into the West over the past 50 years. Their arrival has ignited a series of fierce public debates on religious freedom and refugees, tolerance and free speech, headscarves and airports, gender and race, and so much more. With each passing year the debates only seem to become more heated, complex, and fearful. How are Christians responding to their new Muslim neighbours? How should they respond?
Join us on January 22nd 2020 at 7 p.m. in the executive dining room as Dr. Matthew Kaemingk, winner of Redeemer’s 2019 Emerging Public Intellectual Award delivers the latest World and Our Calling lecture, “Christian Hospitality and Muslim Immigration in an Age of Fear.”
In this public lecture Dr. Kaemingk will not only examine how Western Christians are currently responding to Muslim immigration, he will develop and discuss his alternative political ethic of Christian hospitality and pluralism in an age of political fear and fragmentation, we invite you to join us for an important discussion of religion, immigration, and political hospitality.
