      Muslim, Christian leaders take up global issues at high-level London
      meeting
      By Matthew Davies, October 15, 2008

      [Episcopal News Service] A multi-national group of Christian and
      Muslim leaders, including the Archbishop of Canterbury and the Grand
      Mufti of Egypt, concluded a three-day meeting at Lambeth Palace
      October 15 with a firm recognition of the need for deeper
      understanding and mutual respect as they increasingly find themselves
      drawn together by globalization and interdependence.

      During the meeting, titled "A Common Word and Future of Christian-
      Muslim engagement," the leaders addressed issues such as the global
      economic crisis and the persecution of minorities in Iraq, and
      identified education as a priority for both faiths.
