Compassion and Relationships

12 Feb 2017


Compassion and love are lofty ideas, but how do people of faith live these values in everyday relationships? On Sunday, February 12 at 2 p.m., an interfaith panel of religious leaders will explore “Compassion and Relationships” in the final installment of the Greater Pittsburgh Interfaith Coalition’s series of conversations on compassion.

People of every faith tradition are invited to attend the discussion, hosted by Christ United Methodist Church, 44 Highland Road in Bethel Park.

The four panelists represent diverse faith traditions:

Christianity: The Rev. Carl Baughman, executive director of Samaritan Counseling Center, has dual ordination in the Church of the Brethren and Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). He is a licensed Marriage and Family therapist.

Hinduism: Prabha Sankaranarayan is the President and CEO of Mediators Beyond Borders International. She is a conflict transformation consultant who has mediated, facilitated and trained in Europe, Asia, Africa, and the USA.

Islam: Christine Mohamed, a convert to Islam, is a frequent speaker at various interfaith venues throughout the Pittsburgh region. She teaches a class at CMU’s Osher Lifelong Learning Institute titled “Lions, Tigers and Muslims....Oh My!”

Unitarian Universalism: The Rev. Jim Magaw is the settled minister of the Unitarian Universalist Church of the South Hills. He enjoys making music and writing poetry.
