My Neighbor is Muslim: Exploring the Muslim Faith

Pilgrim Lutheran, Upstairs Community Room
1935 St. Clair Ave. (at Prior)
Saint Paul, MN 55105
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.
