We are living in a precarious moment in which people are increasingly fearful of “the other” and political rhetoric is used to fan the flames. We have an extraordinary opportunity and responsibility to open up a much needed dialogue and build understanding about Islam in our local churches and communities.
“My Neighbor Is Muslim” is a seven-part study guide for use by local congregations or other discussion groups. This resource was developed by Lutheran Social Service of Minnesota and written by professors at Luther College and Luther Seminary and for use in Minnesota. LIRS is honored to be able to launch a national version of this resource for wider use.
