I am very happy about the partnership between Vanderbilt's Project Dialogue, Vine Street Christian Church, and Familiy of Abraham that made a great community event possible.
On February 21, Dr. Eboo Patel will be in Nashville. In the morning he will meet with interfaith leaders to discuss new approaches to building bridges between the faith communities in our city. He will spend the day in meetings with students and teachers on the Vanderbilt campus, and in the evening he will give a keynote address at Langford auditorium to which the entire community is invited.
This keynote address is the 2012 Roger T. Nooe Lecture for World Peace, and I am pleased about the new level of cooperation that the partnership between Vanderbilt, Vine Street, and Family of Abraham represents. I hope we will continue to work together in seeking new ways to build understanding and strengthen ties of friendship between the many faith groups in our city.
Members and friends of Vine Street Christian Church will have the opportunity to car-pool to the lecture.
