Personally I am committed to Jesus Christ and His hopes for (hu)mankind and I would share my saviour with others, but I would also reach out the hand of fellowship to those who are seeking on other paths in the name of our common humanity.”
– Bishop Dr H. B. Amstutz
Every year, Muslims around the world practise the discipline of fasting during the month of Ramadan as an integral part of their spirituality. Following the end of Ramadan, they celebrate the joy of Hari Raya with the gathering of family and friends.
At the invitation of Mr and Mrs Jaafar Mah from the Ba’alwie Mosque, Ms Irene Lim, Mr Poh Zhi Hui, Ms Sophie Liew and I visited our Muslim friends at their home on 28 July 2014.
We met some Muslim friends dressed in their traditional attire, the people of other faith communities and the leaders of the Inter-Religious Organisation.
Mr and Mrs Mah opened their hearts and home for people of different religious persuasions to gather together for fellowship over food.
Their hospitality helped us to break down the social barriers and enabled us to expand our circle of friendship as fellow pilgrims in the journey of life.
