Adult Education - Sunday, September 18, 2016

Announcement from Pastor Brian

This Sunday, September 18, we'll show a video called "Inside Islam: What a Billion Muslims Really Think."  Several years ago, the renowned Gallup polling organization conducted tens of thousands of interviews with residents in 35 predominantly Muslim nations, in addition to smaller populations in Europe and the US.  The film focuses on issues of Gender Justice, Terrorism, and Democracy.  Gallup's polling research challenges the notion that Muslims and the West are on a collision course, and instead suggests that there is a significant degree of shared interests.

The documentary is just over 50 minutes long.  We'll view half of it this Sunday and the second half on the following Sunday, September 25.  We'll start showing the video at 10:00 a.m. for about 25 minutes and then have time for discussion.

I've seen this video and highly recommend it.  I hope you'll join us to see for yourself.

Check out this review, posted on a well-known online shopping web site:

"This is one of the best films I have seen on the Muslim world. My hat is off to the people that produced this. Unlike your run of the mill documentary or cable television report this is an in-depth, coherent and logical analysis of what drives Muslim public opinion. This is exactly the kind of thing that we as Americans need to watch so we can begin to understand the politics of the region and what has shaped the Muslim population's worldview. I would highly recommend this for anyone who wants to actually learn a thing or two about the Muslim world. It's some serious food for thought, and we could all use a little more of that."

See you Sunday!
Pastor Brian
