By Fr. Dr. Rafiq Khoury

Fr. Dr. Rafiq Khoury pointed out that the dialogue leads to life while confrontation only leads to death. Dialogue is pluralistic. It is a dialogue with God, with self, with others which lead into dialogue of religions, cultures and peoples. Fr. Rafiq noted that politicians who are have entered the dialogue of religions. This causes problems for politicians exploiting dialogue to their end as seen in the dialogue of religion in the United Nations. Following his presentation detailed discussions ensued.
