When two religions reach out to each other, what people believe they know can be transformed into knowledge about belief.Wenn zwei Religionen offen aufeinander zugehen, kann aus dem Glauben, etwas zu wissen, etwas Wissen über Glauben werden.İki din birbirine elini uzattığında, bilgiye olan inanç, inanç bilgisine dönüştürülebilir.

My God Your God – sharing faith

For the first time, a Christian and a Muslim community invited each other to join in devotion. Over one day, members of the Fatih Mosque and the St. Clement Catholic Church attended and experienced each other’s services. They visited each other. They got to know each other.

Invite your neighbours

Christians and Muslims can promote dialogue between their religions by opening their minds and the gates to their communities up to other faiths.

  • Conditions of participation and use

    Preamble

    The aim of this website is to forge contact between different religions, encourage interaction between them and promote dialogue for better mutual understanding.

    User interaction guidelines

    We believe that what we set out to achieve can only work if users interact with mutual respect and tolerance. This, not least, includes reference to the people, writings and symbols that, as is well known, assume immense importance in their respective religions.

    With this in mind, the following laws and rules we expect all visitors to follow form the basis for the use of the website:

    • The free and democratic constitutional order;
    • The generally accepted codes of conduct in the different religions, as they are practised, for example, in churches, mosques and other places of worship, and in interaction with one another.

    We reserve the right, without prior notification, to prevent use of the website by individual users who do not comply with these laws and rules. We further, expressly, reserve the right to press charges in the event of a criminal offence.

    Data privacy

    We store, use and process the personal information you enter on this website solely for the purposes of

    1. registering you as a participating community so that other communities can find you, contact you and, as may be the case, take part in your services as a guest, and
    2. presenting you, on request, to a registered community with the aim of establishing contact.

    Once you have completed our contact form, we will send you an e-mail requesting your consent for us to save, process, use and forward your personal information to a community for the purpose of establishing contact. Your contact information will only be sent to the respective community once we have received this consent.

Only once we have received this consent will we register your community and all personal information and post the community’s information (name, address, times of services) on the website. This procedure also serves to ensure that your contact request or community registration has not been submitted by someone other than yourself. By ticking the box next to “I agree to the storage, processing and use of my information for the stated purpose”, you expressly authorise us to save, process and use the following information:

    • First name, surname;
    • E-mail address;
    • Date and time at which the user information was first entered, the e-mail requesting your consent was sent (including the recipient address) and the date and time of the actual granting of consent (to document and verify your consent)

    We will never give your information to third parties. If, at a later point in time, you no longer consent to your information being saved, you can ask us to delete it or suspend it from use, provided there is no legal obligation for use to retain or provide it, by sending an e-mail to mail@meingottdeingott.de.
