Followup to the Faith Shared Chrislam event from June 26
“Let no man deceive you by any means: for [that day shall not come], except there come a falling away first…” Thessalonians 2:3
We promised you that as soon as information became available, we would update you on the latest Chrislam event that took place on June 26th. If you recall, that was an event organized by a group called Faith Shared, and it got over a 100 churches from many major denominations all across America to participate in it. This was part of the program:
“Faith Shared asks houses of worship across the country to organize events involving clergy reading from each other’s sacred texts. An example would be a Christian Minister, Jewish Rabbi and Muslim Imam participating in a worship service or other event.
Suggested readings will be provided from the Torah, the Gospels, and the Qur’an, but communities are encouraged to choose readings that will resonate with their congregations. Involvement of members from the Muslim community is key.”
But now word comes that the National Cathedral in Washington, DC, also took part in this Chrislam event:
“In the center aisle, in place of the baptismal fountain, candle-lit stands bore three books: a Bible, a Torah and a Koran. When a visitor asked a nearby usher what to do, the usher replied: “This is a totally different service than what we usually do. There’s no wrong answer. Around 70 communities participated, including the National Cathedral in D.C. Isaac Arnsdorf of the Washington Post was there:
“What we have done together in this great cathedral this morning, along with others in similar services in houses of worship across our nation, can alter the image and substance of our nation, as well as our religion,” said the Rev. Dr. C. Welton Gaddy, president of the Interfaith Alliance, one of the organizations that sponsored the project. “Today’s beautifully written liturgy, informed by Islam, Judaism and Christianity, declares unambiguously . . . we are not scripture burners, rather, scripture readers.”
A local rabbi and imam joined Gaddy and the cathedral’s Episcopal clergy on the dais to share their messages of mutual understanding and respect. source – Washington Post
