John Dickson’s Letter to his Church about Islam

Over at ABC’s The Drum, John Dickson (Senior Minister of St. Andrews Anglican Church and Co-Director of CPX) has written a letter to his church about Islam that is worth reading.

In the end, I have a simple thing to say, and I feel a strong sense of God’s pleasure in saying it. Common sense and Christian faith urge us to shun both a naïve recasting of Islam as the mirror-image of liberal democracy, and a hateful projection of our own tribalism onto Australian Muslims. Instead, let’s go out of our way in the coming weeks and months to pray for the Muslims around us and to convey love and friendship toward them. I commit to pray for every Muslim I see, and when I meet Muslims personally, I will try to express friendship in Christ’s name.
