An invitation from John Herbst & Peninsula Islamic Community Center
June 1 and June 4
The Peninsula Islamic Community Center (www.piccva.org) warmly invites members and friends of St. Andrew's to join their Ramadan prayer and feast. This year’s celebration will take place at the Boys and Girls Club at 1815 Shell Road, Hampton.  I’m organizing two groups: one to visit on Thursday June 1, and one on Sunday June 4. We will arrive at 8 p.m., observe the sunset prayer, join a buffet-style meal, then talk with some of the Muslims about Islam and Ramadan. The talk will include a question and answer session with the Muslims, and should be completed by 9:45 p.m. (although we are invited to remain for the entire program each evening, ending around midnight). So as not to overwhelm our Muslim hosts, we’re limiting our group to 15 each evening. (We can arrange a third and fourth group, if necessary). If you’re interested in meeting and speaking with Muslims first hand, then email me at herbstot13@gmail.com or call me at 434-228-0210 and let me know which date you want to attend. Also - I will be teaching a series on Islam at St. Andrew's in the Fall. Stay tuned! (John is the author is the Christian Guide to Islam website, an excellent resource to help American Christians learn about Islam. Visit the site at www.christianguidetoislam.com)
