Film and Spirituality 4/6

Film and Spirituality 4

During this session we shall reflect on two questions concerning the relationship between Christianity and Islam;  can Christians and Muslim create friendly relationship and brotherhood?  Why do people of different religions hate one another?

Searching for the answer we will be supported by a French film:

This film tells a true story of eight Cistercian monks from Algeria and their daily lives among their Muslim friends focused on contemplation and community, love and discipline, meditation and action.  Christians and Muslims become brothers, but one day the two communities are shocked when they are told that Islamic fundamentalists have stabbed a Muslim girl to death because she was not wearing a veil.
