This month’s Interfaith Academy took place at Central Christian Church of Austin on November 12th. As a tribute to Veterans’s Day and Veterans, the topic was chosen as Faith in the context of Military Service from Christian and Islamic Perspectives.
The event, moderated by Rev. Eric Gates – the senior minister at Central Christian Church, started with a moment of silence and prayers for the veterans. A Christian and a Muslim veteran shared their views and perspectives on military duty and how it correlates with their faiths.
