1. How concerned would you be if you had Muslim neighbours? How fearful are most North Americans of Muslims? Is this fear justified? What would you say to those who oppose the proposed mosque near Ground Zero in New York City? Do you think Muslim refugees are less welcome in Canada than other refugees?

Call for volunteers

2. What are the benefits and/or drawbacks of building bridges between Mennonites and Muslims? Is this something our churches should be working at?

3. What do Mennonites and Muslims have in common? What are the differences in beliefs and in spirituality? Why might Muslim parents send their children to a school like Rockway Mennonite Collegiate?

4. What do you think the relationship between Mennonites and Muslims will be in the future? Should more communities sponsor interfaith bridgebuilding breakfasts? What would you like to see happen in your community?
