Sunday evening, Nancy and I enjoyed world peace. We went to a local Muslim family’s house for dinner.

The tasty and plentiful Arabic dishes were good and our conversation was entertaining. However, more importantly, we implicitly recognized that Christians and Muslims are a lot more alike than they are dissimilar. We talked about common interests such as the layout of our houses, gardening, teaching children, sports, and international travel.

Just think what would happen if every Christian and every Christian family in the world would befriend one Muslim or Muslim family and if every Muslim and Muslim family befriended one Christian or Christian family. They might not usher in total world peace, but it would move us a long way in that direction.

They would also enjoy some really good conversations and food!
