“God Is One” Project
God Is One: The Way of Islam by Marston Speight (former director of the Office of Christian-Muslim Relations of the NCC USA and retired United Methodist minister) was reprinted following 9/11, with a study guide written by Jay Rock (Director of Interfaith Relations, Presbyterian Church, USA). Upon the initiative of Muslim leaders the three sponsoring organizations have come together to encourage churches throughout the United States to use this book and it’s study guide as an adult education/Sunday school curriculum.
The goals for this project are threefold:
w Enhance the knowledge of Islam among Christians
w Improve the attitude of Christians towards Muslims
w Encourage building relationships between Churches and Mosques in local communities.
We are now ready to run a Pilot Project that will involve churches located in the vicinity of Hartfor Seminary (Hartford, CT) and Union Seminary (New York City). If your church would like to participate in the important venture, we ask you to do the following:
w Two day-long training events were scheduled. The next one takes place Saturday, March 25, at Union Seminary in New York. The first training event took place March 11 in Hartford, Conn.
w Training will be conducted by Hartford Seminary professors/graduate students who are themselves Muslims.
w Participants will receive a complimentary copy of “God Is One” for personal use and a set of resource materials for the participating church. Lunch and snacks will also be provided.
