In response to the current climate of fear and distrust regarding refugees, the Lutheran Immigration and Refugee Service has created a new free resource called “My Neighbor is a Muslim.” This is a seven-part study guide for use by congregations or other discussion groups. It is designed to open up a much-needed dialogue and build understanding about Islam.
This resource was developed by Lutheran Social Service of Minnesota and written by professors at Luther College and Luther Seminary for use in Minnesota. LIRS is launching a national version of the resource for wider use, with the hope that people will not only learn but take the next step and actually meet their Muslim neighbors and begin to form meaningful relationships.
