For the Peace of the city: understanding and relating to our Muslim neighbours and colleagues - Phil Lewis Tuesday 9th October, 2pm-4pm, Church House, Leeds How do we embody the gospel of reconciliation in our relationships with Muslims as we learn together to share public and civic space while we stay true to our missionary vocation? This presentation will help us understand the changing face of Muslim communities as they develop new skills for living well as a minority within a context of bewildering and rapid inter-generational changes. In particular we will touch on two critical issues: the world of the imams and their training and the new visibility of Muslim women.
