“…Religion isn’t about believing things. It’s ethical alchemy. It’s about behaving in a way that changes you, that gives you intimations of holiness and sacredness.” -Karen Armstrong
“On March 4, Rev. Kennedy led morning worship and then an afternoon workshop, Facing Islamophobia, at our church. … There were such positive comments from all those who participated. Since that day, Rev. Kennedy’s message received excellent coverage in our local press. She was very persuasive in imploring non-Muslims to educate themselves about Islam and Islamic cultures. I believe that her approach has a transforming effect.
In addition to educating people about Islam, she also invites people to examine their own thoughts, fears, feelings and hopes. There is nothing more effective than bringing Muslims and non-Muslims together to counter the harmful stereotypes perpetuated in our media. Rev. Kennedy’s work leverages the work of our congregations in creating a world of love and justice.”
In faith, Rev. Barbara McKusick-Liscord
