Friends Talking Faith

This Week

August 19, 2014 – Faith & Religion: Muhammad

Season 6, Episode 8 (Original Wise Guys Series: 3 of 3)

MuhammadThis will be the final in our three-part series on “The Original Wise Guys.”  On this episode of Friends Talking Faith with The Three Wise Guys we’ll discuss faith and the Prophet Muhammad, peace be upon him.

He was 40 years old, meditating in the cave of Hira, about two miles from Mecca, when he received his first revelation from God, calling for an end to idolatry and to preach the “oneness of God.”  Today, 1.6 billion Muslims across the globe look to him as “Messenger of Allah.”  So, who is this Messenger?  What is the core of his message and teachings?  How much or little do we really know of Prophet Muhammad?  Also, what about Judaism and Christianity in relation to this founder of the Islamic faith?  On this program we also discuss the current conflict in Gaza.  Join us for  Friends Talking Faith with The Three Wise Guys – Tuesday at 6:30 PM — WMFE 90.7 FM.


August 12, 2014 - Faith & Religion: Jesus

Season 6, Episode 7 (Original Wise Guys Series: 2 of 3)

JesusA - Symbol - Click Here 2This is the second installment of the “Original Wise Guys” series.  On this program we discuss faith and Jesus.  Our last episode was about Abraham and Sarah – and the next episode will be about the Prophet Muhammad.  As we continue our series on faith leaders central to the founding of each of our three faith traditions, we look at what these ancient spiritual teachers mean for each of us.  Jesus: to some of us he’s the son of God, to others a spiritual teacher, to others a prophet, and so on.   Where do Judaism, Christianity, and Islam find common ground around the figure and person of Jesus – and where do we differ sharply?  On this episode we discuss Jesus, and ideas about him from the three Abrahamic faith traditions.

Dr. James Armstrong, has been one of the leading voices in America on the issue of religion and politics. It’s a lively and thought-provoking conversation. We also discuss Dr. Armstrong’s new book:

The Journey Continues

We’ve been doing it together for almost 15 years: talking and listening with each other as friends!  A Reform Rabbi, a Suni Imam, and a Congregational (UCC) Minister.  It has been a journey of ever deepening friendship and respect.  When you are friends first, then even when you disagree, you’re still friends.  It’s a model of interfaith relationship we believe is essential for people of faith, and those who claim no faith community at all.
