Knowing our Muslim Neighbors Better

St. Thomas’ has intentionally been exploring who is our neighbor. In Lent, we explored racism and white privilege in a six-week series; we also had a afternoon workshop focused on combatting Anti-Semitism. St. Margaret’s has invited the people of St. Margaret’s, St. Thomas and St. Luke’s to meet with Imam Mohamad Bashar Arafat, a Muslim scholar with rich interfaith experience, on Thursday, May 11 from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. at St. Margaret’s Parish Hall (1830 Connecticut Avenue, NW). Imam Bashar will share his experiences, which range from spiritual encounters to civil society partnering, in a brief opening statement. He will then engage us in dialogue about what we can do to support the Muslim community and to combat the demons of religious intolerance.

Spiritual Study Opportunity

Are you more familiar with some of Christianity’s spiritual traditions than others? More comfortable with social justice traditions, sacramental practice or contemplative prayer than perhaps charismatic practice or evangelism? Want to find out where you fit in among these? Come join small groups of fellow parishioners as we work through A Spiritual Formation Workbook by James Bryan Smith and Richard J. Foster.
We will meet for 8 weekly sessions beginning on Wednesday, April 26 at 6:30pm as we explore:

  • workbookthe Prayer-Filled Life via the Contemplative Tradition;
  • the Virtuous Life: Holiness Tradition;
  • the Spirit-Empowered Life through the Charismatic Tradition;
  •  the Compassionate Life through the Social Justice Tradition;
  • the Word-Centered Life through the Evangelical Tradition and
  • the Sacramental Life through the Incarnational Tradition.

We will begin each evening with a light supper. To RSVP, please use form below…
