The Center for Anglican Communion Studies of Virginia Theological Seminary concluded the 2014 Christian-Muslim Conference in Dodoma, Tanzania, June 26 with the presentation of a statement of intent.
The Dodoma Statement 2014 [PDF] begins: “We are Muslim and Christian faith leaders, scholars, inter-religious workers and peace-builders. Together as descendants of Abraham we believe in one creator God who has called us to be caretakers of creation, to work for the common good, and to promote and practice peace.”
The three-day conference brought together more than 60 Christian and Muslim faith leaders from Southern and East Africa.
Co-hosted with Msalato Theological College, conference participants were welcomed on the first day by the Most Rev. Jacob Chimeledya (VTS ’03), Archbishop of the Anglican Church of Tanzania, and Sheikh Mustapha, Regional Sheikh of the Dodoma Region.
