The Sultan and The Saint Discussion Group

January 8, 2018 @ 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

TV Channel:  RMPBS (Rocky Mountain PBS)

Date: Tuesday, December 26th, 2017, 7pm MST

The Sultan and The Saint tells the story of the encounter between Saint Francis of Assisi (Christian) and Sultan Malik Al-Kamil (Muslim), two men of deep faith who bucked a century of war, distrust and propaganda to discover mutual respect and common ground. Told with historical accuracy, the film speaks with urgency to our present Muslim/Christian divide and our call to bridge this chasm.

The Sisters of St. Francis Justice, Peace & Integrity of Creation Commission and the Islamic Society of Colorado Springs are pleased to inform you of the nationwide PBS broadcast of The Sultan and the Saint, a story of Muslim-Christian peacemaking during the 5th Crusade.

After viewing the docudrama, if you wish for opportunity to ask questions and enter into dialogue with others to come to a deeper understanding of the Christian/Muslim divide and to grow in appreciation of each other.
