Lehigh Dialogue Center interfaith discussion

The coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic cut short an interfaith discussion series, but not before two sessions were held, including March 8, prior to the last Sunday of services at St. John’s Evangelical Lutheran Church, 37 S. Fifth St., Allentown, before the Pennsylvania stay-at-home mandate.

The series, presented by the Lehigh Dialogue Center, Bethlehem, explained the similarities and differences between Christianity, Judaism and Islam.

According to its website, the Lehigh Dialogue Center, “For over 14 years, [has been] helping build relationships among diverse cultures and traditions by providing an atmosphere of peace and understanding for all people, regardless of their race, culture or tradition.”
