11:30 AM to Sunset
The Children of Abraham invites you to join Winthrop University Students in creating works of Chalk-Art on the sidewalks of Scholars Walk, next to the DiGiorgio Campus Center. Use this art medium to visually depict ways that our community is peaceful and unified or ways that you feel it could and should be. This program is open to all ages. Bring chalk (if you have any) and ideas. We will provide chalk for those not having any and the university will provide the sidewalk.
Your art work could appear on this website and even on future event flyers.

July 16, 2017: Joseph / Yusuf: The Son of Jacob
Join The Children of Abraham as we explore two versions of the Joseph / Yusus story: Judeo Christian and Islamic. What do they have in common, and what is different? Three sections of the story will be read in English translation from each tradition. After each set of readings, there will be an audience discussion led by Dr. Kristin Kiblinger, Professor of Religious Studies at Winthrop University. Come prepared to question, discuss, and learn about the longest story in the book of Genesis. See how a shepherd boy became a prince of Egypt.

February 11, 2017: Beloved Community
It is believed that an American philosopher name Josiah Royce first introduced the term Beloved Community. His life’s work was all about what was required to live a meaningful life in an era of tumultuous change not unlike today. Royce understood Beloved Community to be the result of loyalty to the divine indwelling that equally graces all people.
Royce may have introduced the concept of the Beloved Community, but the concept was the creative energy and prophetic imagination that sparked the Southern Freedom Struggle led by Nobel Laureate Dr. Martin Luther, Jr. His philosophy is clearly stated at The King Center website in one of the sections of The King Philosophy found at the following web link.

Join The Children of Abraham as we seek to find ways to apply the Dr. Kings concepts to our community and make it truly a Beloved Community.

NOTE: We have learned that some participants will be coming directly from a benefit concert and will not have time to eat. Bring a sandwich or other similar type food with you. The flyer ask participants to bring some sort of "sweet" finger food. Commercial cookies meet that definition. Out of respect to our observant Muslim and Jewish participants, please do not bring food containing pork products. Thank you.
