Community Interfaith Dialogue

December 8, 2016 @ 7:00 am - 9:00 pm

Free

Among other questions, the panel seeks to explore beliefs about what happens after death and practices concerning what must be done before and after death. Representatives of three different local immigrant communities will explore these beliefs and practices from the perspectives of their religious traditions: African Islam, Serbian Christian, and Lao Buddhism.

The panelists will focus particularly on the tensions between traditional theologies and rituals of death, and the way in which death has increasingly become the domain of medicine and law.

Moderator: Norma Hirsch, Assistant Professor of Osteopathic Medicine at Des Moines University

Panelists:
Younes Ali Younes, imam of the Islamic Center of Des Moines
Ksenija Milinkovic, presbitera of St. Demetrius Serbian Orthodox Church
Ajahn Jackson and Ajahn Somphan, Wat Phothisomphan
