I am really happy you are here. It has been such a blessing for me to get to know and love dear Muslim friends. They have enriched my life and brought me joy in many ways. I truly enjoy being with Muslims.
I have talked with many Muslims from many different countries and have learned much about Islam from them. I hope to continue to learn more. Perhaps from you.
My desire for this blog is that it would help bring greater peace between Muslims and Christians and between all people and God. I believe the key is Jesus Christ because he is the Prince of Peace (God called him this in the Tawrat).
I don’t like it when people pretend that there are no differences between Islam and Christianity. I know I will write things you don’t agree with. I also don’t like it when people vilify Muslims as though there is no overlap between us. So I hope you will always feel welcome. We have many things in common and there are significant differences. But this doesn’t mean we can’t pursue relationships with one another and grow in our understanding of each other. In the course of such relationships we will both learn new things and have some of our long held beliefs challenged.
It would be great if you joined me in the conversation. It would also be helpful for my Christian readers. We can learn much from you. So please feel free to leave comments as often as you like. Also feel free to contact me with any questions or further clarifications. I welcome your feedback even if it is negative.
Here are some key posts that I think will better help you understand where I am coming from.
