We live in an increasingly interconnected and increasingly diverse city which is both exciting and challenging for mission. From time to time divisions and tensions can rise over cultural, ethical, and religious matters resulting in the polarisation of people.
As Jesus-followers in this city we’re called to embrace and serve our neighbours offering the hope of Jesus to all. How then should Christians respond to Islam in Australian society? It’s a hot topic! Where do we start? What are the similarities and differences in beliefs and practices? Does it even matter? Yes! The differences are real, and they’re significant.
EFAC SA invites you to Grace Norwood on Wednesday 17th May from 7:30pm to 9:30pm to explore Jesus and Islam with Samuel Green. It will be engaging, thought-provoking, heart-warming and practical.
Cost is $10 per person (supper included).
