Muslim Journeys: Spiritual Companions on a Journey to the Beautiful: Muslim Pathways of Faith and Practice
Thursday, October 24, 4:30-5:30, Wille Hall, Coats Campus Center
Dr. Colby, with the Department of Religious Studies at the University of Oregon, will explore the diverse avenues of belief and practice that Muslims have traversed in their spiritual journeys across the centuries. In particular, he will highlight the importance of the Qur’an and the example of Muhammad’s life to different Muslim communities, as well as some of the religious, spiritual and artistic ways that Muslims in different times and places have sought to reflect the idea of “putting the beautiful” into practice. You will also have an opportunity to review and check out the books and videos in the Muslim Journeys Bookshelf collection.
