This past weekend, members of the three largest religions in the world, Jews, Muslims, and Christians, participated in a Multi-Faith Weekend where each group agreed to visit a religious service given by members of the other faiths followed by a time for questions and answers. The goal is to promote "greater understanding, while facing our differences with grace and humility." ...
From Northwood Church's website: "Muslims, Jews, and Christians hold different beliefs about who Jesus is. As Christians, we must maintain our distinct beliefs, yet live in peace with others of faith...
Similar dialog is currently found on Temple Shalom's website, yet no information about the event is found on the Islamic Center's website.
Participants were asked to RSVP in advance and to "Wear proper, modest attire out of respect..."
Northwood Church also asked their members to listen to online recordings of Carl Medearis ... and to "Pray, asking God for discernment and a heart that loves others as Jesus loves them." ...

Syncretism at its worst.
WHAT HAVE YOU GOT IN THE CELLAR, HERR KLOPEK?!
And why would I let him in mine unless he is interested in conversion!
This is about as effective as Copenhagen. There is great money and power involved here, and how much more beneficial would it be to establish a one world religion. No thanks, my faith is my own and not for sale.
The event is posted on the Irving Masjid’s and Imam’s Face Book pages.
As a participant of this event, this was not syncretism at all. We are not looking to find a “common religion” or mix faith in an ecumenical manner.
The whole point of this event is to get to know those who don’t know Jesus Christ as the Savior and Lord in a respectful, God-honoring environment. Today we had Muslim and Jewish guests attend the church service where they heard the Word.
How else would these people come to church? How else could we witness and minister to people like this if we don’t know who they are and what their needs are; and let them know we care about them?
Thank you for finding this item and posting it :)
I saw the update to this article this morning, plus this one:
Thank you for sharing that with me. I have commented on at least one of her articles so she probably wanted to see what I was doing and discovered this event. I thought she had a very detailed well-written article.
