News is news because it’s unusual, spectacular, or scary. It follows that the news we get and remember about Muslims will probably be one or more of those three. Since most of us don’t know a bunch of Muslims (yet!), we’re apt to assume the events making up the news accurately reflect who they are.

Much of what I ask you to do in Muslim Connect can be done from your couch: Think differently, pray, advocate for biblical behavior toward Muslims. Other things require getting up, facing a little discomfort, maybe expending some social capital.
