Archbishop on Eid Al-Fitr: Let us build deep and lasting ties with each other

Archbishop on Eid Al-Fitr: Let us build deep and lasting ties with each other

In his first Eid message to Muslims, Archbishop Justin praised the “joyful” work of building Christian-Muslim relation, posted on his website. Here is an excerpt from his remarks:

Reconciliation is a theme that I have returned to often in these months. Jesus Christ calls us to a restored relationship with God and with one another. There is much in our world and in our history that tries to divide us. Negative events, prejudices and fears build walls that are hard to break down.

But God is greater! We, Christians and Muslims, should commit ourselves to draw on God’s strength for the hard, but also joyful work of building deep, long-term relationships with one another.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
