10) Number of Muslim children in UK doubles in a decade

The numbers don’t lie. One in 12 school pupils in the UK is now brought up in the Islamic faith. The 2011 Census there suggests that the Muslim population in England has risen by 75%. Some 30% of all Muslims in England and Wales are aged 15 and under. In at least one city, 80% of school pupils were described as being Muslim. London is being described as 34.5% Muslim, with large populations of Sylhetis and Somalis. See the origin of these stats at …

11) Pick up Engaging Islam Weekend or Week-Long Seminar in Dearborn

Perhaps you’ve heard of the conference, “Engaging Islam.” Perhaps you’ve wondered what it is. Well, there’s never a better time to go find out. Check it out at…

 

www.engagingislam.org/events/2019/5/24/engaging-islam-weekend

 

All the details are there — dates, times, fees, the works. A lot of our workers have taken this course and it inevitably prompts the worker toward greater boldness and initiative to enter into spiritual conversations with those they meet in the Muslim world. Betty hurry and sign up though. The conference is just a month away.

12) You Will be Moved by "The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind"

Have you seen “The Boy Who Harnessed the Wind” (available on Netflix)? It’s about a young boy in Malawi trying to make it through life in spite of his family’s poverty and the political forces around him. He loves science and wants to learn — but there are so many enemies that seem to want to keep him away. The movie seems fit for ages 12 and above for sure. There’s a scene or two of fighting, but nothing that a young lad wouldn’t see on any other prime-time drama. Frankly, the life lessons about trying to make it in the midst of a corrupt democracy is pretty chilling. You’ll ponder this one for a long time after viewing it. Learn more about the movie on the BBC’s synopsis page at…

3) This DVD Curriculum Will Help You Build Friendships with Muslims

Mike and the rest of the workers at the Coalition of Ministries to Muslims in North America have done a great job with their DVD training program, “Journey to Jesus: Building Christ-centered friendships with Muslims.” Just to be sure, we took a look at it ourselves and it’s the real deal. You’ll feel 100% more equipped and ready. And when you feel equipped and ready, you’re lots less likely to wimp out at the last minute because you’re afraid you’ll offend (or worse). This should be required material for every new worker among Muslim unreached people. Thanks, COMMA Network for a job well done. And just think — you get the entire course for $10.

14) The BackPage: “The Straight Path” — Jesus in the Qur’an?

straight_pathThis past week, I came across a chart showing how the Qur’an and the Bible both point toward the coming of Jesus as the Anointed one. I can’t find a LOT about this concept, but the best resource I’ve seen on it so far comes from…

http://thekingdomconversation.com/

along with a summary article at…

http://www.missionfrontiers.org/issue/article/guide-muslims-to-the-bible

My sense is that this approach might be controversial for some (those who fear that prompting any Muslim to spend more time in the Qur’an is a mistake?), but what I’m looking for is — a) What kind of experience do you have with this approach? and b) How have Muslims responded to it, in your case studies? Finally, c) What additional resources have you used or have you heard about that can guide a person in understanding this approach?

If you would be so kind as to click “Comment” following the web version of this item, I’d love for us to explore the use of this approach with a view toward fashioning an understanding of it with our Muslim neighbors today. Thanks in advance for any time you can invest.
