Sheffield Interfaith wishes to express deepest sympathy for those injured and killed in the shootings at Garissa University in Kenya last week, most of whom were singled out merely because they were identified as Christian. Our thoughts and prayers are with all those, of whatever belief or faith, that have been left so bereaved through these unjust actions. We are appalled by violence carried out either in the name of, or against, any religion and recognise that the vast majority of people, whether Christians or Muslim or whatever, believe in loving their neighbours and showing peace towards one another.
Rev Gareth Jones and 4 members of Shirley House Interfaith Centre committee (representing Christian, Sufi and Pagan traditions) were welcomed by 9 of the brothers of the Uk Islamic Mission, based on Abbeydale road who are all long-established representatives of the Muslim community in this area of Sheffield. Theyhave recently refurbished their ground floor room, and are already developing an Islamic study library, with very nice bookcases. They meet regularly to study the Qu’ran together and are developing some youth outreach activities.
We talked about the types of activities that happen in our two different centres, the similarities and differences in our memberships, and possible ways to develop further contact- and we all enjoyed some excellent chicken curry, chappatis and cake.
