Christians and Muslims

Friends, 

Lyn Fleury Lambert writes  in an article recently published by 
"Sunrise" magazine: 

"In May 2006 I was one of twelve Americans  assorted Christians and 
an "unaffiliated" couple  who visited Turkey at the invitation of a 
group of Turkish Muslims who now live and work in the United States. 
Accompanied by host-guides we journeyed through Western Turkey, 
taking in historical and Biblical sites and, in the interest of 
expanding mutual understanding and appreciation, meeting with 
business people, students and educators, writers, media people, 
religious leaders, and Turkish families. What a trip! Turkey, most 
scholars agree, is the world's largest open-air museum, and the 
Turks are a warm, hospitable people who welcome guests with great 
generosity. With a population reported to be 99.1% Muslim and a 
secular government dedicated to the separation of mosque and state, 
Turkey is an ideal place to explore interfaith, intercultural 
understanding."
