Recently I visited an ancient mosque.
It’s something I do as often as I can. I like to pray on mosques. Weird, I know, but there’s something about calling out the name of Jesus in the middle of a place that denies his deity that makes my heart sing. Some of my best conversations about Jesus have been in a mosque.
This particular day was a little different.
Because this mosque is part of an ancient section of the city and visited by thousands of tourists each year, they have what I like to call the “Evangelism Section” near the door. It’s manned by two very lovely ladies who were quick to give me and my visiting friends loads of pamphlets in Arabic and English on women in Islam and the five pillars of Islam. We were happy to oblige and give her some of our own materials. Quid pro quo, right?
And then she asked me if we wanted to watch a five minute video about Islam.
