Practiced by more than 1.5 billion people worldwide, Islam is often misunderstood and stereotyped. This series offers an opportunity to lay aside misconceptions and to learn about our Muslim neighbors and their faith through their own experiences and voices. The goal is to build bridges and promote peace through listening, learning and positive engagement with our brothers and sisters in the Muslim community. Join us in Milford Chapel at Park Road Baptist Church.
