“I Don’t Think we can be Silent Anymore”

“These are the kinds of things ordinary people can do to counter misunderstandings,” believes Rabia Zahir, volunteer at the Islamic Society of Southern Maryland.  The key, she said, “is just communicating and knowing each other.”  The February 14 gathering at the mosque in Prince Frederick stemmed from an outreach of Broadview Baptist Church and All Saints Episcopal Church, both in Sunderland, last fall.  Youth from the two churches have developed a partnership and began telecommunicating with youth people from Amman, Jordan, talking about career goals and the role of religion in their daily lives.  On February 28, youth from ages 12 to 18 were invited to join in one of these videoconferences with youth in Amman.  Later that same day, Zahir led another interfaith community conversation about Islam.
