Islam and Culture: Insights into Terrorism and the teaching of Islam
Sunday, October 16 at 2:00pm

This morning I went to my neighbor’s house to pick up their newspaper while they are out of town. I can honestly say that I’m not real sure where they traveled to and even less sure of when they return. I do know the drill though, pick up the papers (yes they get two) just before I leave our house for the day. If the papers aren’t there that is my indication that my neighbors have returned.

This scenario may sound somewhat silly, but it is absolutely true repeating itself regularly and I am certain this request will occur in the future as well. Maybe I should get to know these people I call neighbors a little better, but we really don’t have that much in common – at least I don’t think so. Maybe I should ask and find out more, but I only seem to see them when we are coming or going or when they are on their back deck and we are on ours.

In Luke 10, Jesus speaks with a lawyer concerning how one enters heaven and shares that focusing on God is important, but loving your neighbor as yourself is just as important and then tells the story of the Good Samaritan. In hearing these words again I am reminded that I remind must get to know these people next door and truthfully make the same effort towards all my neighbors.

On Sunday October 16, we will have the opportunity to do just this as we welcome back Shakil Haider to speak on “Islam and Culture” directing attention to Islam and terrorism. This was a wonderful time of sharing last time he joined us. I know too that Shakil’s voice is a bit difficult to hear and understand and we will have better microphone amplification for him that day.

Please join us as we truly learn more of our neighbor and how we can best understand and live together.
