We have the opportunity to study the Torah
together with our Jewish brothers and sisters (from Beth Tzedec and Temple
B’nai Tikvah). We are looking at Exodus this spring (starting at Mount Sinai). Please call the church at (403) 256-0262 if you are interested in attending and/or need a ride. You can also sign up in the Narthex.
In 2017 at the ELCIC convention we created a
statement of faith calling us, congregations, to learn more about our Muslim
neighbors, finding opportunities to work together for the love of the world. I
created a study from my Master’s thesis work to help teach others about Muslims
and our relationship with them. I am offering this six week study at All Saints Lutheran Church this May. Please call the church at (403) 256-0262 if you are interested or sign up in the Narthex. Please state your preference for sessions whether Thursday or Sunday.
Starting May 6th our Muslim friends will be starting a thirty day fast called Ramadan. From Sunrise to Sunset every day they fast from all food and drink. And then each night during Ramadan when the Sun has fallen they gather together for a feast, which they call Iftar.
The Turkish Muslim community that we are building relationship with offered to come to All Saints to do an Iftar with us one evening. We will gather here at All Saints after sunset (approx. 9pmish) on May 10th with our Muslim friends to participate in an Iftar to share in one of the five pillars. More details will come.
I also encourage those who will be attending the Iftar to try fasting for that day from sunrise to sunset to get an idea of what our Muslim neighbors have to endure. Why? Experiencing each others' traditions is a wonderful expression of solidarity and of learning about one another. We look forward to this opportunity.
If you are interested in attending please sign up in the Narthex or call the office at (403) 256-0262
