    Please join us for the Portland premiere of Unity Productions Foundation's latest film The Sultan and the Saint at Muslim Educational Trust. A docudrama film about Muslim/Cristian peacemaking narrated by Academy Award Winner Jeremy Irons.

    During the Crusades, Saint Francis of Assisi risked his life by walking across enemy lines to meet the Sultan of Egypt, the Muslim ruler Al-Malik Al-Kamil. This remarkable encounter, and the commitment to peace of the two men behind it, sucked the venom out of the Crusades and changed the relationship between Muslims and Christians for the better.

    Breaking Borders by Breaking Bread Together: Beloved Community Forum - RSVP

    Breaking Borders by Bread Bread Together...Our November gathering will focus on the 100th anniversary of the ill-gotten Sykes-Picot Agreement of 1916 which secretly and arbitrarily redrew the borders of the Middle Eastern countries. The Agreement was made without regard to language, culture, tribal allegiances, or other critical factors. The pact was created to sustain the colonial dominance of England and France.

    We shall hear several reflections about the impact that the agreement has had on the countries and on the people that were the subjects of the redrawn borders and the geopolitical nightmare that lingers to this day. Afterward we shall share table together to share our best understanding and capabilities to “Break Borders by Breaking Bread" together. We will reflect upon the challenges confronting us as nations and as people struggling to create a different world, a world in which borders are not artificial lines drawn arbitrarily on living soil separating humankind from one another, but rather doorways of welcome and hospitality providing access to the Beloved Community.

    Free to attend. Please RSVP* through the tickets link. - https://www.eventbrite.com/e/breaking-borders-by-breaking-bread-beloved-community-forum-tickets-39626326409

    RSVP'ing is not required to attend, but helps us plan appropriately for food and refreshments.

    Ramadan Tent Project Portland, OR
    through
    MET (Muslim Educational Trust)

    Ramadan Tent Project (RTP) is a London based organization with a goal of social change. Its mission is to provide Iftar - the dinner to break ones fast - to Muslims as well as anyone else who would like to join our event during the Holy Month of Ramadan. We are the first branch of RTP to host the Open Iftar in the United States. Last year, over three consecutive days, we had the pleasure of breaking our fast with a total of 600 people in our community, in the backyard of a local church. Everyone who attend came from different faiths and walks of life.

    We would like to invite you all to come join us in breaking our fast this Ramadan. We will be hosting Ramadan Tent at the Muslim Educational Trust on memorial day weekend.
