Notes
"The theme of this year's International AIDS Conference was `Access for All'. Special attention was being given to the role of communities in combating the AIDS epidemic. A significant dimension of community response was found in the work of faith-based organizations and the growing forms of collaboration among them". Prior to the International AIDS Conference, "the Christians, Muslims and Buddhists organized separate pre-Conference meetings for their own communities. The Pre-Conference meetings focused on workshops, sharing and discussions in the light of their particular religious teachings, principles and experiences." "The presence and involvement of faith-based actors at this particular Conference was the largest and most active to date."

In the face of violence, 'A Common Word' sows common ground : The Anglican Church of Canada could soon join a global movement on Christian-Muslim dialogue -- but 'A Common Word' has already brought Albertans together

Notes
"For the Rev. Scott Sharman, animator for ecumenical and interfaith relations for the Anglican Church of Canada, such incidents [as the March 2019 Christchurch] underscore the need for Christians to take a stand against hate and promote dialogue between the world's two largest faiths. At the November 2018 meeting of the Council of General Synod (CoGS), Sharman presented a resolution calling for the council to affirm efforts by the department of faith, worship and ministry to support Christian-Muslim dialogue under the banner of 'A Common Word Between Us and You', working in parallel with the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Canada (ELCIC) as a full-communion partner project. A global initiative inspired by a letter signed by 138 Muslim leaders in 2007-2008 -- subsequently endorsed by more than 200 Christian leaders, including former Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams -- 'A Common Word' invites Christians and Muslims to come together for open dialogue and seek common ground to work towards peace" (p. 1, 12). "Incidents such as the [March 2019] New Zealand massacre, the acts of intimidation targeting Edmonton mosques, and the two-year anniversary of the Quebec City mosque shooting 'highlight again how important that is, and that this isn't just a problem that exists in other parts of the world', Sharman adds" (p. 12). "'One of the unique things about 'A Common World Alberta' is that it is an annual event that brings in the same people over and over again', says Ibrahim Long, a Muslim chaplain and teacher who has attended the dialogue for five years" (p. 13). "Jane Samson, an Anglican lay reader at Holy Trinity Old Strathcona and a history professor at the University of Alberta, describes growing hate crimes as the result of complex global processes and events, from 9/11 and the Syrian refugee crisis to economic and technological changes" (p. 13).
