7) Seeking DMM & Other Resources in Arabic

24:14 is currently compiling resources from teams, churches & organizations to share with the broader network to help launch disciple-making-movements and training hubs across the globe! As they do this, they have received a specific request for resources sharing about DMM principles specifically in Arabic, & they’d love to see if any Brigada subscribers have any! If so, please click comment, if those are publicly available on the web, and share the URL. If they’re not publicly available, please email

morganat2414nowdotnet  (morganat2414nowdotnet)   with those Arabic materials/resources or connections to translators.

 

9) What Kind of Drama Sets Off Your Embarrassment-Sensor?

Over the past few days, we’ve heard from multiple individuals that there are certain kinds of drama that set off a kind of “embarrassment-on-behalf-of-the-Body sensor.” For example, if a video presents Islamic immigration as something horribly wrong — whereas you’re happy to have Muslims moving nearby because you can’t wait for them to encounter Jesus as the one who can take away their sins. But when you hear that drama in a video about Islamic immigration, you’re just … a little… embarrassed on behalf of Christendom? Does that happen to you? And what sets it off in your own life?

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 …

Our suggestion is — greet these stats with hearts that are prepared, open, and ready to share the person of Jesus. One way to learn how — see the next item (Item #11).

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.

3) Ramadan Prayer Focus

muslim prayerMuslims around the world are getting ready for the annual Ramadan, Islam’s holiest month (June 18 to July 17). Christians are gearing up as well for the “30 Days of Prayer for the Muslim World,” an international movement that began in 1993. Millions of Christians worldwide, and from many denominations, have regularly participated in this concerted but respectful prayer effort for Muslims during a time of the year when many of them are much more deeply aware of spiritual matters.
