The Weekly Forum
The Forum. NOTE:  The discussion on Models of Biblical Authority and Interpretation was postponed from January 6 to February 17 due to snow/ice.  
We will start 2015 on January 13 at 7 p.m. with a 5-part series called The Jesus Fatwah.  A Fatwah is a ruling on a point of Islamic  given by a recognized authority.  Much of what passes for information about Islam is weed-like disinformation rooted in stereotype and watered by fear.  This is your chance to hear the facts.  In The Jesus Fatwah, seventeen Islamic and Christian scholars offer reliable informatin about what Muslims believe, how they live out their faith, and how we all can be about building relationships across the lines of faith.  This very timely series, produced by two United Methodist ministers, will run at 7 p.m. on Tuesday nights from January 13 through February 10.  Titles for each week are:
     January 13--Islam 101:  In which we tell you some of what you need to know about Islam.
     January 20--Misconceptions about Islam:  In which we help you adjust your Malarky Filter.  
     January 27--Islam in America:  In which we introduce you to people who love America and                         pray towards Mecca.
       February 3--Making Connections, part 1:  In which non-Muslims make a case.
     February 10--Making Connections, Part 2:  In which Muslims have their say.
