ISNA Continues The Sultan and the Saint Dialogues with Bruderhof Christian Community in Upstate New York

Earlier this month, IOICA Director Colin Christopher spent two days living with the Bruderhof , an intentional Christian community that gathers under a unique model of work and worship. All 2,700 Bruderfhof members live among the twenty-three intentional communities spread throughout four continents, and equally share profits generated by their numerous global businesses. Children are schooled based upon the biblical teachings of generosity, honesty, and peace, and are provided with a choice to remain in the community or seek alternative lifestyles upon graduating high school. The Bruderhof's low attrition rate has led to their movement expanding to new locations, and has provided greater opportunities for interfaith exchange. Drawing upon the Bruderhof's foundational principal of pacifism--which sparked their persecution in Germany in the early 20th century, and their emigration to the United States in 1920 to seek religious freedom and refuge--Colin joined Alexei Laushkin, Founder and Director of the Kingdom Mission Society, to screen Unity Productions Foundation's The Sultan and the Saint and hold interfaith dialogues about peacebuilding within Islam and Christianity. Over the two-day period, Colin and Alexei held 9 separate discussions with over 150 of the Bruderhof community, including 120 high school students and teachers at their stunning Mount Academy High School in upstate New York. Conversations ranged from thematic concepts in the film to who American Muslims are and what Islam is. The Bruderhof elders also shared their groundbreaking work on forgiveness and the need to more effectively engage on gun violence prevention. IOICA is currently working with the Bruderhof to establish an interfaith youth exchange with a local Muslim community in upstate New York.
