When Muslims and Christians get together, when they build genuine friendship, when they talk about life and faith – I get excited!
People say it can’t be done.
Watch this video about Imam Talib and Pastor Hanna from our good friends at Sabeel media (http://vimeo.com/sabeel):
Meeting these men recently was a joy to me.
May there be so much more of this kind of friendship between Muslims and Christians!
This is my prayer.
(Postscript: while I believe in Muslims and Christians building friendship, I also believe that genuine friendship should be strong enough to withstand the weight of honest sharing about what we believe:
* What we each believe about God: who is He? what is He like?
* What we each believe about Isa – Jesus: who is he? why did he come to earth?
* What we each believe about paradise – heaven: how can we get there? what do we need to do? what we do we need to believe?
If we are truly friends, if we truly love each other. . .let us talk from our hearts about these things.)
