Taking Heart Dinners Build Bridges

The Minnesota Council of Churches and the Muslim-American Society of Minnesota sponsor an annual interfaith exchange intended to increase understanding between communities.

It’s called Taking Heart.

Non-Muslims are invited to join their Muslim neighbors for an iftar dinner during the holy month of Ramadan.

Assignment:  Do a Morning Blend interview – or –  attend one of the early Taking Heart events and produce a report for the Morning Blend and KFAI.org.
