Sponsored by Second’s Faith Development Committee

What should Christians know about the Qur’an, Islam’s sacred text? How do different Muslims understand the Qur’an and what role does it play in their faith and lives? You’re invited to join us in this series of learning, conversation and reflection about the Qur’an.

This class meets on Saturdays, from 9 a.m. – 10:30 a.m., in the Witherspoon Room at Second. The class will meet for the next four weeks.
