October discussions on Islam

In response to a number of requests from our congregation to learn more about Islamic beliefs and practices, we are starting a five-part series during First Hour, led by Conee Biggs, called “The Jesus Fatwa.” How might we move beyond stereotypes and fear when it comes to our Muslim neighbors here in the Twin Cities and around the world?

In Islam, a “fatwa” is a ruling on a point of Islamic law given by a recognized authority. In a DVD recording called “The Jesus Fatwa,” seventeen 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. Come and join us at 9:30 a.m. Sunday mornings.
