Series: My Neighbor is Muslim
â€‹News reporting and political speech can increase fears about Islam. This also can be a source of anxiety for our Muslim neighbors. Over four weeks, we will use a resource written to help Christians understand Muslims, and Muslims to understand Christians. Each evening will include information about the beliefs and practices of Islam and questions for reflection and discussion. On one evening, a Muslim member of our community will speak to the group.
