Understanding Islam

An Adult religious education evening led by Rev. Clay Nelson during the winter months of 2015.

Understanding Islam

From April through October 2015 over twelve Wednesday evening sessions we watched a short video presentation on Islam by an esteemed Islamic scholar and followed up with a discussion on the issues raised.

Clay sees that it is vital for the west to know more about Islam, given Islam’s growth and projections it will become a dominant religion thoughout the world within a few decades.

How we as a society respond to Islam highlights principles of religious freedom and respecting those of different beliefs, as we struggle with the issues of tolerating the intolerant and understanding extremism, be it religious, polical or social.
