A reunion event in Kennedy Hall brought together an Episcopal bishop, a rabbi and a Muslim scholar, all associated with a "movement" that seeks to encourage people of different faiths to talk and listen to each other. The panelists--Bishop John Chane of Washington, D.C., Rabbi Bruce Lustig of the Washington Hebrew Congregation and Professor Faizan Haq of the State University of New York at Buffalo represented the three faith traditions deriving from the biblical Abraham narrative. The three recalled how they first talked to one another in the wake of the Sept. 11, 2001 attacks and subsequently formed close friendships and a public discussion group.
