Please join us for the Portland premiere of UPF’s latest film The Sultan and the Saint at Muslim Educational Trust. A docudrama film about Muslim/Cristian peacemaking narrated by Academy Award Winner Jeremy Irons.
During the Crusades, Saint Francis of Assisi risked his life by walking across enemy lines to meet the Sultan of Egypt, the Muslim ruler Al-Malik Al-Kamil. This remarkable encounter, and the commitment to peace of the two men behind it, sucked the venom out of the Crusades and changed the relationship between Muslims and Christians for the better.
ICMU events are opportunities for the general public to learn about and participate in Christian-Muslim relationships on both educational and interpersonal levels. We feel it is vitally important to include small group discussion and a chance to interact with one another on a personal level. Shared food is often a component of our gatherings. Breaking bread together is a bridge to memorable social experiences while learning about the culture and faith traditions of those around us.
