Muslims Worshiping Inside A Christian Church

Somewhat jokingly, I can see a lot of my¬†“Baptist to the core” friends biting their lip or pounding their fists on their desks as they read this. (They’d never admit they were Baptist to the core, but would say they are Christian to the core.)

First, you see over 300 Muslims celebrating¬†Ramadan inside a Christian (Episcopal) church. Second, this is in the nation’s capital. Third, you learn that the pastor of the Christian church is female.

A couple sections from the article:

  • “It’s our job to be the hands and feet of peace in the world, and how do we do that is by loving one another,” the Rev. Elizabeth Gardner said.
  • “Look, look at that,” he said, pointing out a stained glass window showing Jesus. “I’m not Christian, I look at that. That’s beautiful.”

If you’d rather not watch the video, you can read the article here.

  1. The church I first served after seminary is located on Long Island. We hosted a Jewish congregation on Fridays and Saturdays. Their congregation was actually larger than ours. It's hard to buy land in that area because real estate is so expensive and zoning is difficult to change. We had a great relationship with them and I became dear friends with the rabbi. After I left, the church also began allowing a local imam and his Muslim study group to meet in our fellowship hall. They now call it an interfaith campus.
