This mid week adult retreat will provide an overview of the basic practices and beliefs of Islam and fit them into the Abrahamic continuum of Judeo-Christian-Islamic belief. This was so well received in April of 2017 that Calumet has invited our presenters back for further opportunities to understand the hisptry of Islam, the diversity of Islamic culture, and the possible causes for current issues we face today especially in Europe. Our leaders will focus on Islamic Spain as a time when the “children of Abraham” mostly lived in harmony: what made it possible and how it failed. This Lutherhostel is designed to allow plenty of time for questions and discussion.
