The Sultan and The Saint logo

The Christian Church In Kentucky, the Catholic Diocese of Lexington and Lexington United Interfaith Encounters are partnering to present the docudrama “The Sultan and the Saint.” on September 19, 2017, at 7:00 p.m. at the Kentucky Theater in downtown Lexington. This is the true story of the risks for peace St. Francis of Assisi and the Sultan of Egypt took during the Crusades. We pray that this film will further our efforts to manifest peace and harmony among all persons of faith in the greater Lexington area and beyond.

The tickets are free! However, you do need to go to this website, sultansaintlexington.eventbrite.com to order them. Bring your friends, Sunday school class, CWF circle or just you and your family to this important event when people from many faith traditions will intentionally gather to promote love and peace and to make a bold witness to the power of God to unite us all in God’s shalom.

We will observe Reconciliation Sunday on October 1. Your special offering to this Disciples Mission Fund ministry will go to help the ministry teams that are working on policies and processes to combat the spread of intolerance, hatred, violence, and fear. This year's theme is "Everyone has a Story."

"When we have insight about one another's journey, we are less inclined to deny one another's humanity."
(Matthew 13:10,13)
