How does a video uploaded on YouTube cause worldwide protest in Muslim-majority countries? How do we address violence against our neighbors of different faiths in light of the Sunday morning shooting at the Wisconsin Sikh Temple? How do we combat stereotypes about Muslims in our own neighborhoods?
These are just a few of the pertinent issues that will be addressed at this upcoming SCUPE event. Come for a lecture and round table discussion with Rev. Dr. Johnson Mbillah, a renowned speaker and writer, and the General Advisor for the Program for Christian Muslim Relations in Africa (PROCMURA) in Nairobi, Kenya.

Rev. Dr. Mbillah is an ordained minister in the Presbyterian Church of Ghana, and holds a Ph.D. from the University of Birmingham, in the UK. In March 2011 the Global Ministries of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) and the United Church of Christ gave Dr. Mbillah the prestigious Affirmation Award for PROCMURA’s monumental work on Christian-Muslim relations, for having successfully assisted many churches in addressing religious plurality, and for creating forums for solving conflicts between Muslims and Christians.
