Reflecting on “World Interfaith Harmony Week” and the role of religious leaders…

Like many positive stories regarding Christian-Muslim Relations, World Interfaith Harmony Week (February 1-7) passed without much fanfare or acknowledgement. Proposed by King Abdullah of Jordan to the U.N. way back in 2010, the week has not gained much traction. Recently, the Rev. Munib Younan, President of the Lutheran World Federation and Bishop of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of Jordan and the Holy Land (ELCJHL), highlighted the importance of this commemoration and the role of religious leaders in promoting peace in the world.

Apparently, the first step to be taken is for us to actually recognize that there are people of good will in the Middle East who are reaching out and working for peace. We might do well to be aware of that.
