“Muslims and Christians: Partners in Indonesia”

A Conversation with Presbyterian Church (USA) Mission Co-Workers

Bernie and Farsijana Adeney-Risakotta

Pebble Hill Presbyterian Church

5299 Jamesville Road, DeWitt

Sunday, October 13, 4:00-5:30 p.m. 

 

The nation of Indonesia has a long history of religious peace.  In recent years that peace has been threatened as new freedoms have led to an upsurge in radical Islamicist activity and attacks on minority groups.  In response, Muslim and Christian scholars formed the Indonesian Consortium for Religious Studies (ICRS), the world’s only consortium of Muslim, Christian, and secular universities.  Bernie Adeney-Risakotta was the founding director, and his wife, anthropologist Farsijana Adeney-Risakotta, teaches at ICRS.  The goal of the consortium is partnership between religious leaders to address pressing social and political problems.  This conversation is open to the public, and people of all faiths are invited to come.  A reception will follow.
