A Pakistani Author and an American Preacher…

This worship service will feature a dialogue about the perceptions and misperceptions that abound when it comes to how Muslims are viewed in America. The author Saadia Faruqi will take part as we answer questions we have posed each other about the realities of Muslim life in America. She will also be on hand to sign copies of her book Brick Walls, after the service.
