Pilgrim Lutheran, Upstairs Community Room

In this time of increasing Islamophobia it is important for Christians to be allies, to live more fully into our mandate, “Love your neighbor as yourself,” to welcome the stranger and refugee – as Pilgrim Lutheran plans to do in January.  Using portions of the video series from Living the Questions, The Jesus Fatwah (opinion): Love your (Muslim) Neighbor as Yourself and the Lutheran Social Service curriculum, My Neighbor is Muslim, we will explore and discuss:

  • January 11 – Islam 101
    Basic Muslim beliefs and values, Five Pillars of Islam, demographics, Qur’an & Hadith, Mosque & the Madrassa
  • January 18 – Misconceptions about Islam
    Myths about violence, women and other fears
  • January 25 – Making Connections: In Which Muslims Have Their Say
    Inviting neighboring Muslims to speak, dialogue and answer questions

This series is open to the public and co-sponsored by Pilgrims for Just Peace and the Saint Paul Interfaith Network (SPIN). We recommend review of the on-line curriculum, My Neighbor is Muslim, for greater depth and for additional information not covered during sessions.
Questions? Please contact Joan Haan.
