Let us learn about traditions

With less than a month to the start of Ramadan, as a Christian, I would like to make an offer to the local Muslim community.

I will read the whole Quran if a local Muslim will read just the Four Gospels.

I will be reading about 20 per cent more words.

Perhaps other Christians and Muslims would like to take up the offer?

At the end, even at set stages, we could meet up and politely discuss what we’ve read?

Lack of knowledge leads to division and misunderstanding.

Learning just a little about other people’s traditions leads to peace.
