10-Speaker Webcast by Celebrate Mercy
In the month of December and Islamic month of Rabi' al-Awwal, many in the Christian and Muslim worlds are remembering the lives of both Prophets. Celebrate Mercy hosted a 10-speaker educational webinar to explore their legacies and how they continue to transform our world and hearts. This special 2-hour online program could be viewed live on Dec 24 Until Jan 31 from anywhere with an internet connection.
Though this webcast focused on the Muslim perspective on both prophets, Christian guest speaker Jer Swigart and members of his congregation were joined. Jer is a world-renowned evangelical leader who discussed his perspective on Jesus' legacy and discussed his bridge-building efforts between Christians and Muslims. Jer and Celebrate Mercy’s founder first met last week at a White House interfaith gathering.
