The Islamic Society of North America has invited former U.S. President Jimmy Carter to be a guest and keynote at it’s 51st annual convention this month. The nation’s largest Islamic convention is titled Generations Rise: Elevating Muslim American Culture

You’ll want to watch the promotional video (say, is that Jim Wallis’ photo?):

Past ISNA keynote speakers include Rick Warren in 2009 and President Obama last year.

Of special interest this year is the “interfaith dialogue” sessions. Looks like President Obama’s special assistant Melissa Rogers is heading that up. Interfaith partners include:

Sojourners
United States Conference of Catholic Bishops
United Methodist Church
Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.)
National Council of Churches of Christ in the USA
Evangelical Lutheran Church in America
Episcopal Church
American Baptist Churches USA
Cooperative Baptist Fellowship
