The Mustard Seed project aims to bring Muslims and Evangelical Christians in predominantly Red States to the same table, to talk, get to know each other, share a meal, and ask uncomfortable questions. At MPAC’s 2021 virtual event, we heard from attendees of our Mustard Seed Project events, about the impact these gatherings had on them.
Read the firsthand experiences of those who have already participated here: Bridging across Polarization: Muslims and Evangelical Christians Planting the Mustard Seed for America. We interviewed eleven attendees, some Muslim and some Christian. They shared with us their stories about what brought them to the Mustard Seed, what they learned from participating, and how they felt sitting at a table with strangers of another misrepresented faith. The stories we collected are a testimony of the immense possibilities that God’s work opens for us when we engage to change the world, one act of compassion at a time.
Help us build bridges and understanding, support the Mustard Seed Project today!
