Bridges: Christians Connecting with Muslims
Friday, May 19 (6pm - 9pm) – Saturday, May 20 (9am -5pm)
This spring Christians have an opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of the similarities and fundamental differences between Christianity and Islam. Christians have responded to Muslims in many ways, but all too often, without the compassion that characterizes Jesus. Christianity and Islam are not the same, but they do have some similarities. We will be offering a course that seeks to highlight ways that replace fear and intimidation with love and gentle boldness, reshaping the way Christians view and respond to their Muslim neighbors.
Please join us for a weekend seminar facilitated by Debbie Popielarczyk, Mary Middleton and Randy Spence along with three distinguished guest speakers whose education, expertise and field experience will shed new light on what is happening today in the Islamic world and how it relates to Muslim refugees in America. They are Dr. Samira Page, founder and Executive Director of Gateway of Grace, a Dallas refugee ministry; the Rev. Chris Royer, Executive Director of Anglican Frontier Missions and veteran international missions worker; and Dr. Duane Miller, author, researcher and lecturer on Muslim-Christian relations with 14 plus years of practical experience in the field.
We will be using the curriculum, Bridges: Christians Connecting with Muslims, produced by Fouad Masri, founder of the Crescent Project. It is easy to understand, practical and Biblical, allowing you to gain insight into Islamic history and Muslim beliefs, while providing useful next steps and stories that help you gain understanding of how to be a good neighbor and Christian witness in a city where God has brought Muslims from all over the world to our doorsteps.
