Do people who are not Christians or Jews have concepts that coincide with the Christian idea of Jesus as savior or the Jewish concept of a future Messiah? And is there any reason for Christians to consider what other faiths teach?
Continuing a month-long interfaith series on “The Role of the Messiah in World Religions,” the Rev. Dr. Basye Holland-Shuey will lecture in Fayetteville on Tuesday, Oct. 29, 2013, at First Presbyterian Church on the perceptions of the Messiah in non-Christian faiths. Holland-Shuey, an Episcopal priest who has taught world religions at Belmont University, did her doctoral studies at the University of the South on how interfaith dialogue can become part of a person’s spiritual development.
The presentation, which is free and open to the public, will be held from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. in the church’s large fellowship hall at the back of the historic sanctuary, which is at the corner of East College Street and Mulberry Avenue just east of the Fayetteville Square.
The free community series continues Tuesdays, 6:30 to 7:30 p.m., through Nov. 5.
