Speaker: Namik Ilksoy, Turkish tour guide for "Islam in Turkey" J-term class.
Date & Time:
4:00 PM - 6:00 PM
Rogge-Leyden Room, MHC St. Paul Campus
Namik Ilksoy discussed the journeys of Saint Paul, the letters of Disciple John and Saint Ignatius and the early Christian Councils.
As a professional tour guide in Turkey leading tours internationally, Namik has been helping Dr. Adil Ozdemir's J-term class, "Islam in Turkey," for the last four years. He brings to Muslim Christian Dialogue twenty-four years of experience as a professional tour guide, who has led at least ten Church groups a year to religious sites. He discussed the beginnings of Christianity on the soils of Anatolia (Turkey), and shared how he came to realize how little we as Muslims and Christians know about each other.
Namik often gets invited by the churches to share his views.
