Coffee, Cookies, & Connecting Faith

Coffee, Cookies, & Connecting Faith

By Hosai On Wednesday, March 18, I was blessed to join a group of Christian and Muslim women at a popular coffee shop for a fellowship meeting. We first met a few weeks back at a Friendship Mixer called “Two Faiths, One Friendship” which promotes healthy dialogues between Christians and Muslims. After our brief encounter[…]

Discovering our personality type: The INFJ

Discovering our personality type: The INFJ

The first sentence I read in the results of a personality test I took at the behest of Michal is that my type, INFJ, is “very rare, making up less than one percent of the population.” Despite the rareness, though, guess who else scored in exactly the same category? That’s right, my Christian “twin,” Michal! I had[…]

The joy of knowing who God has made you to be

The joy of knowing who God has made you to be

The bell for recess rang. “Alright everyone, I want to see no running. Go outside in an orderly manner. Michal, I need to talk to you. You stay here.” Everyone looked at me as my head turned red. I had never been asked to stay in class before! Once the class was empty, I walked over to the[…]

Peace begins with a Smile

Last Monday, I packed my two youngest sons (ages 3 and 5) up in our car and headed north to Disneyland. For a Midwest-born girl, there is no bigger treat than being able to drive from my home to Disneyland in a little over an hour. We spent the day playing and laughing, enjoying “snow”[…]

Prayer in Muslim-Christian Friendships

“Michal, I need to talk to you.” My dad looked serious. My young mind was racing. Had I done something wrong? Did someone die? Was my dad going to die? He smiled when he saw my concerned face. “I need your opinion and input on a very important decision.” I felt a deep sense of[…]

Conversing with God, the “Christian” way

Conversing with God, the “Christian” way

This morning, I found myself repeating a prayer by Prophet Moses: “My Lord, I am in dire need of whatever good thing you may send me.” I say this Quran verse every morning because it’s on my “official” daily prayer list, but this was the very first time that the words really penetrated my soul. This past[…]

When Christian music speaks to my Muslim heart

One recent morning, I was driving and felt compelled to switch on the radio. The first station I skipped to was playing a song I had never heard before. “Gravity,” the radio dashboard spelled out, “Shawn McDonald” “Air1.” I kept glancing at the screen, trying to figure out what I had landed on. I liked the melody,[…]

I’m a Christian that is loving this Muslim song

When I first heard this song, it spoke to me. Although not entirely my music style, I felt that the lyrics were uplifting and inspiring. The song is about someone I deeply love and whose teachings I seek to obey each day: Jesus. But then a great surprise came: this is a song by a Muslim[…]

We would like to thank all those who came out in support of our first “Two Faiths, One Friendship” mixer on Feb. 22! We were honored to see so many smiling faces.
