On Thursday, November 16, from 6:30 to 8:30 pm, there will be a screening of the docudrama The Sultan and the Saint at the Muslim Educational Trust, 10330 SW Scholls Ferry Rd. in Tigard. This film about Muslim-Christian peacemaking is narrated by Academy-Award winner Jeremy Irons. From Amazon.com: “Eight hundred years ago, Francis of Assisi and the Sultan of Egypt met on the bloody battlefields of the Crusades. Based on new research and scholarship about that fateful meeting, The Sultan and The Saint tells one of the great, lost stories from history as two men of faith fought against a century of war and distrust in a search for mutual respect and common ground.”

Tickets for this showing are $10, $5 for students, and are available at metpdx.org. For more information, contact Rania Ayoub at  rania@metpdx.org or 503/579-6621. Ecumenical Ministries of Oregon (EMO) is a co-sponsor of this event.
