    Friends:

    I had a very fine experience last night in visiting
    the class of Dr. Richard Jones and Dr. Mohamed Adam El-Sheikh
    at VTS. Theirs is one of the first classes for the Certificate
    Program in Christian Muslim Dialogue. There were 25 or
    so students in class last night. I heard two interesting
    student presentations on fasting–one by a Christian student and one
    by a Muslim student.

    I congratulated them on being the first–
    Faculty and students of the first required course in the certificate program.
    Of course, they have encountered all the issues in a beginning class.
    And there are many differences in background and perspective as
    well.

    The program is launched–thanks to these good folks.
    I hope that we will be building bridges of mutual understanding
    for years to come.

    Peace,
    John
