A small miracle is happening right before our eyes if we only open our hearts to see.
A minister, a rabbi and a Muslim sheik put their differences on the line and walked away clearing an unobstructed path to God.
They met together and spoke of the greatest aspects of their respective faiths, as well as what they believed were the most divisive.
What they most valued as the core teachings of their tradition:
the minister “unconditional love.”
the sheik “compassion.”
the rabbi “oneness.”
What they regarded as the “untruths” in their own faith:
the minister: “Christianity is the only way to God.”
the rabbi: the notion of Jews as “the chosen people.”
the sheik: the “sword verses” in the Koran, like “kill the unbeliever.”
Now, I’m simply using my poetic license here. About that “unobstructed path to God,” that is. But read this story submitted by Dustin.
It is from a newspaper article of the “three amigos” who may, one can only hope, help to unite all again. (See if you don’t agree!)
