Episcopal Church Hires Muslim Cleric

The newest staff member at St. Johnıs Episcopal Church in Denver, Colorado,
is a Muslim Imam. Ibrahim Kazerooni was formally installed on November 14,
2004 as the director of the churchıs Abrahamic Initiative, a bridge-building
effort among Christians, Jews, and Muslims ("Reaching Out, church hires
Muslim," "The Denver Post," November 11). This is probably the first time in
history that a Muslim cleric has become a staff member in a church. Church
representative Greg Movesian said, "We hope this appeals to people who donıt
look upon people of other religions as a target for conversion but rather
potential partners in maintaining a civil society" (O Timothy, Vol. 22, No.
1).

[Oh dear! We mustn't appear to others as if only Christ is the Truth and the Way! That would be judging their beliefs!! "There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof
are the ways of death" (Proverbs 14:12).]
