A Muslim Scholar on the Hardest Truths to Tell

“If you speak for another, it means more than if you speak for yourself, for your own people. And when there’s so much daily tension between Muslims and Jews, it’s momentous for us to do this work, whether it’s me with the Shoah, or its a Jewish scholar speaking out about the Muslims in Bosnia or about Palestinian suffering. We are commanded by God to speak the truth.” (Mahnaz M. Afidi, author of Shoah Through Muslim Eyes)

The table I long for …

The table I long for—the church I hope for—has each of you sitting around it, struggling to hold the knowledge that you, vulnerable you and courageous you, are beloved by God, not just welcome but desperately, fiercely wanted.  Jeff Chu (Gay Christian Network Conference, January 2015)
