Have you ever heard an Imam give a rousing, passionate Sunday sermon at a Methodist church in Tennessee? And get a standing ovation from nearly 700 people?
Clergy Beyond Borders’ first stop in Tennessee on Sunday was an 11a.m. service at Christ United Methodist Church in Chattanooga. The church’s pastor, Rev. Mark Flynn, is a long-time friend of our Rev. Steven Martin and the church welcomed us warmly after the service. We came back to the church in the afternoon for a smaller gathering that provided thoughtful, intelligent discussion on interfaith dialogue and respectful pluralism.
Many thanks to Christ United! Listen closely:
