Ann Holmes Redding is a minister and author. In 2006, she founded Abrahamic Reunion West, which her website describes as “committed to healing the Abrahamic family’s global dysfunction.” Her engagement with Islam led to Ann’s defrocking after 25 years as an Episcopal priest.
Ann is co-author of Out of Darkness, Into Light: Spiritual Guidance in the Quran with Reflections from Jewish and Christian Sources. Her article “The People of God and the Peoples of the Earth” was published in The Peoples’ Companion to the Bible.
“Ann is one of the finest preachers I’ve ever heard,” Catherine Kovell of St. Andrew’s told us. “Her spirituality transcends organized religion and can appeal to just about anyone.”
The event flier reads:
If both Muslim and Christian can co-exist within one person, then Ann’s experience suggests human beings are able not merely to exist together, but to cooperate and thrive. We can join together to become the beloved community and work together to cherish our shared home. Though our human communion is broken into pieces, because God is one, we are all one. We can make the decision to act as one, working to unravel the lies that tell us the contrary. We must search our traditions for the pieces of that truth and bring those pieces together—our pieces of the peace.
Come hear Ann address some of the burning issues of our time and receive her inspiration to face and overcome them.
