UNF Interfaith Center and Atlantic Institute of Jacksonville organized one of the largest community discussions on Middle east peace. WJCT’s First Coast Connect host, Melissa Ross, sat down with a panel of nationally acclaimed faith leaders, Rev. Molly Marshall, President of Central Baptist Theological Seminary KS. Imam Abdullah Antepli of Duke University and Rabbi Donniel Hartman, President of Shalom Hartman Institute of Jerusalem and joined with four UNF students and millennial change makers for an afternoon of storytelling and practical solutions for a better world. Conversations explored the role faith communities may play in resolving one of the most intractable international conflicts of our time. Discussion was lively and informative while guests participated in active interaction at the end of program. UNF Interfaith Center promoted guidelines for civil discourse, here are the golden rules;
