Our sisters and brothers in the Northeastern Iowa Synod have compiled some resources to help develop a better understanding and answer questions or concerns about Islam. The article on their website is linked here.
They refer to a book titled My Neighbor is Muslim which can be downloaded by clicking on the link. I have briefly reviewed it, and find it to be very interesting. I plan on finishing it after Christmas.
They also refer to a DVD series called Discover Islam. I have ordered the series and will have it in our video library for people to check out and watch.
If you have questions or concerns about Islam and Muslims, let me know. I believe we are allowing fear to overtake us, and are condemning a whole group of people for the actions of a few. This is not the way for followers of Jesus Christ to act.
EDIT: I forgot to include a link to the open letter Presiding Bishop Elizabeth Eaton wrote to our Muslim brothers and sisters, pledging solidarity and support to them in this time of increased fear.
