Inter-Faith Sharing Guidelines Drawn Up

The issue of how to share faith within a multifaith context is one that the church has been struggling with in West Yorkshire for many recent years.  I attended a two week residential training course as part of my ministerial training where we looked at issues of social cohesion and multi-faith working and was left feeling a little desolate.  My experiences were that other faith groups were derogatory and proselytising whilst we ourselves were discussing how as Christians we were to try to avoid these issues.  And at the same time there was always a nagging doubt in the back of our minds… something about… good news.

It is with this in mind that I excitedly read the news that The Christian Muslim Forum have come up with guidelines for how to share faith with integrity and respect for each other.  Living and working in West Yorkshire, this isn’t a hypothetical situation!  Lets hope that this filters down to the ground!
