This Fall we will be hosting Encountering the World of Islam at Eastbrook Church. I am thrilled that we can in some small way be a part of this great experience. Here is a description of the class taken from the web-site:
Encountering the World of Islam is a twelve lesson course which combines typical learning assignments with experiential activities and on-line interactions for an integrated learning environment. Each course lesson is taught by a different Muslim or Christian expert. In each lesson you will explore the Muslim world and God’s plan for Muslims by reading from a collection of writings about the life of Muhammad, the history of Islamic civilization, Islamic beliefs, Muslims today, and the everyday lives of Muslims from Morocco to Indonesia. Gain insight into diverse Muslim cultures and worldviews as well as Christian outreach toward Muslims, our response to Islam, and prayer for the Muslim world. The course textbook has more than 80 authors providing a broad range of perspectives on Islam.
Join us for the kick-off class this Sunday, September 9, from 5-8 PM at Holy Grounds Cafe. The first class is free, but the cost to enroll in the entire class is $250. You can sign-up online or take a look at the class brochure here.
