Christian - Muslim Interactions

We Remember...and Hope

from Shane's Muslim Connect

I began hearing the news, sitting at my home office desk in Hilversum, Netherlands. Maybe you remember where you were when so much changed for the U.S. and beyond.

What Would it Take For You to Trade it All Away?

from Shane's Muslim Connect

Please see the special note at the end of today’s email

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.

I'm in Love With This Idea!

from Shane's Muslim Connect

Don’t you love the feeling of discovering something unexpected and good? Growing up in Indiana it was arrowheads in the field behind our house or mushrooms in the woods. On a walk last week here in Southern Colorado, I stumbled upon a beautiful pair of shed mule deer antlers. 

Two Vital Attitudes

from Shane's Muslim Connect

These have been some challenging days for Americans. Maybe even more challenging for you, if you’re from elsewhere. I want to think rightly about the violence in El Paso and Dayton, about the troubling situations in Hong Kong and Kashmir. About threats and woe and fear. 

Fear is a Liar...Usually!

from Shane's Muslim Connect

Sometimes we should listen to our fears. They’re talking sense: “Keep eating potato chips at your current rate, you’re going to die early and require an XL casket!” 

Other times, not so much: “If I don’t forward that Facebook post, all of my civil rights will evaporate, and a communist will be elected president!”
