Understanding


Saturday morning monthly programs (usually the 4th Saturday of the month) start at 10AM ET and feature speakers, panels, or films and active discussions that open new perspectives on relevant issues. Given the tenor of the times, the major program emphasis is on relations between Christians and Muslims, but people of all faiths, all cultures and backgrounds are welcome to participate in positive and construction discussion.


A potluck lunch follows each program, offering a chance to share a meal and conversation with persons never before met.  Countless friendships have been so formed.

Our Mission


The Muslim Christian Dialogue promotes understanding and mutual respect between Christians and Muslims. It explores historical, political and cultural factors that have shaped the current context and have contributed to the views we hold today. Through discussion and reflection, it believes that all can counter prejudices and inflammatory rhetoric and help raise the tenor of the dialogue. In the end, the CMD promotes one’s personal and collective responsibility to build a more open and accepting community at home, contributing to a more just and peaceful world.

Our Fall 2015 schedule is here!


August 29th, 2015


Film: “Faces of the


Enemy” by Sam Keen


This film, as relevant as when it was released in 1989, unveils a frightening pattern of conflict after conflict through news footage, public service announcements and political cartoons. It also unmasks how individuals and nations dehumanize their enemies to justify the inhumanity of war. A facilitated discussion will follow the showing. Click here for a trailer.


Time: 10 a.m. – 12 noon.  Potluck lunch follows the program.
Location: Hunter Presbyterian Church, 109 Rosemont Garden, Lexington, KY 40503
