Standing by Our Muslim Neighbors
I wrote a letter of support for Cordoba House and our Muslim neighbors last week. This letter was adapted and co-signed by Christian and Jewish religious leaders of Iowa City. They include: Rev. Denny Coon, Rev. John McKinstry, Rabbi Jeff Portman, Rev. Paul M. Shultz, Rev. Mel Schlachter and Pastor Dorothy Whiston. The letter was picked up by the Iowa City Press Citizen and published today. Hopefully this letter will provide words of compassion and siblinghood in the current cacophony of misunderstanding and animosity in our nation. Click here to read the letter. Then feel free to pass this letter on to others. May we all stand by our Muslim neighbors in love and support as we celebrate the goodness of all our religious traditions. Peace.
