Looking to the Other

This week at New College, there was a conference. It was the inaugural conference for 'The Christian-Muslim Studies Network'. The topic was Reframing Christian-Muslim Encounters: Theological and Philosophical Perspectives. I didn't go to a lot of the conference. In fact, I only went to two sessions. In one, a friend of mine delivered a paper, and I wanted to hear it. Another was the English book release of conversations between a Christian scholar and Islamic scholar who live and work in Lebanon.

Do I Know My Neighbor?

"Introducing yourself to a new neighbor before avoiding them forever." I laughed when I saw it but then quickly realized that I have only talked to our neighbor once since moving in. We have polite smiles or "hellos" in the hall as we pass by each other, but we don't know each other.
