#Muslims4Lent

This just warms my heart!

After all the terrorism and finger-pointing and fighting and speculation and profiling and racism and ignorance … all of that and more, I’m completely humbled by this and so very appreciative.

While we were arguing about whether Duke can play the Muslim call to prayer, other Christians were fasting with their Muslim brethren during Ramadan.  Before ISIS beheaded 12 Coptic Christians, other Muslims formed a human shield around Egyptian Catholics attending Mass.  And Christians formed a human shield around Muslims praying.

It makes my heart ache that there are places in the world where violence and death and torture is a very real possibility, but in the middle of all this darkness there is light.  There is hope.

Yes, we CAN treat each other like brothers under the same God.  We CAN.  And we WILL.

  1. Thank you so much for making me aware of this campaign. When I lived in Morocco in the 90s, I fasted during Ramadan, for the sake of solidarity with those around me. It was a wonderful experience.

    Breakfast at 5:00 am in the winter time is so cold! I had to go back to bed just to warm up!
