The Sultan and The Saint #3

Desert Spring UMC invites you to attend a preview showing of an upcoming PBS documentary on August 20th at 3:00 p.m. at Desert Spring UMC.  The documentary is scheduled for public release in December.  It tells the story of an Egyptian Sultan and Saint Francis of Assisi, and how their relationship (and the risks they took) helped lead to a time of peace.  This is a timely documentary and offers much for us to consider when it comes to Christian-Muslim relations today.  The event is being sponsored by Desert Spring UMC, in partnership with Imam Aziz and members of the Muslim Community.  The event will help us to better understand Islam, but more importantly help us create relationships with our Muslim neighbors as we carry out the great commandment to “love our neighbors.”   There is no cost to attend the event.  We invite you and your congregation to attend this timely event.
