The Jesus Fatwah: Coming to Thursday Nights following Easter!
Among the most frequently recurring topics from the national/international front are related
to Islam. According to the website www.muslimpopulation.com there are 7.1 billion Muslims in
the world. 53% in Africa, 32% in Asia, 7% in Europe and 2% in North America. In other words, Islam is a world-presence
that is not going away! Many people have genuine concerns regarding Islamic Fundamentalism, I.S.I.S or the “Islamic
State,” and other questions regarding Islam, in general. I have to admit that I spend an inordinate amount of
time thinking about these subjects; especially from a faith perspective. I encounter a wide range of points of view
regarding these Islam-related topics. The predominant points of view are quite negative … quite fearful. What
I do believe is that Islamic extremists do NOT represent the vast majority of Muslims! However, when I seek to respond
as one who is supposed to be faith-informed … I find my knowledge
base severely lacking! I suspect I am not the only Christian in Mid-Missouri who could benefit from learning more about
Islam, the “Islamic State,” and other truths about this world religion.
After a careful search for balanced, responsible resources that address the above topics, I have come across a faith-based,
video series from “Living the Faith” producers, who offer us knowledgeable, responsible insight from 17 Christian
and Islamic scholars. The series is entitled: “The Jesus Fatwah: Love your (Muslim) Neighbors as Yourself.”
Here is a brief description:
Much of what passes as
information about Islam is weed-like disinformation rooted in stereotype and watered by fear. In The Jesus Fatwah, Islamic
and Christian scholars offer reliable information about what Muslims believe, how they live out their faith, and how we all
can be about building relationships across the lines of faith.
This six to eight week
Bible Study, that I will be offered on Thursday Evenings, 6:30 -8 pm beginning April 9th. We will meet in the Hawkins
Sunday School Classroom.
