I just got back from a 3 day conference sponsored by the Jewish Christian Muslim Association of Australia. Wonderful, rich, exciting time. Dealing with text, tradition and truths, exclusive and shared. I wanted to go because I didn't have a sense of what the variety of the Islamic tradition might contain, where I have a sense of the diversity that can be contained with the Jewish and Christian communities; plus I wanted some resources for speakers and discussion for the upcoming semester and the coming year at RMIT. It worked well. I made some good connections, met some lovely people, maybe even opened the door to future friendships. Here are some photos from the occasion - well, two from my morning walk and one from the last day luncheon. Now a few days of work preparing for next semester and then a short break in Sydney.
