St John's Episcopal Church Sounds The Adhan!



Mentioned below is another example of the disturbing trend within the mainstream churches of America ; namely, the

acceptance and even adoption of religions contrary to the teachings of Jesus Christ. These events should not be so
surprising given the Apostle Paul's admonishments that come the Last Days, just prior to the Return of Jesus Christ,
there would be a great apostasy, and a great falling away from the true tenets of the Christian faith. Mentioned
below is an example of the desertion from the teachings of Jesus, and an example of what is still yet to come. The
Lord is building a Remnant Church , not a politically and socially acceptable church where the gospel of man becomes
the cornerstone.

A great day to sleep late in Jersey , as long as you're not within earshot of
St John's in Montclair . via Interfaith Service at St. John's Parish in Montclair | Baristanet.

This Sunday morning, May 22, at 10 a.m., the sounds of the adhan - the
Muslim call to prayer - will ring out in St. John's Episcopal Church
Montclair .

embracing the traditions of both religions.

Reverend Andrew Butler, Rector of St. John's parish since September 1, 2010,
decided to have this service in order to demonstrate that both Islam and
Christianity stem from Abrahamic roots, as well as to dispell negative
stereotypes about the Muslim faith.

"I've grown concerned about the demonization of Muslims. I want Montclair to
develop an understanding of the religion." Reverend Butler stated.

In addition to Butler , speakers will include Anisa Mehdi, a scholar and
journalist who will describe what it means to be a Muslim in America and
Abdul-Alim Mubarak-Rowe, an assistant Imam at Masjid Waarith ud Deen in
Irvington , a media consultant to the American Muslim Alliance and a

The Reverend went on to say, "We are trying to find ways to blend our
community through religion. It's hard, but we can accomplish it through this
organic event and working together through outreach and other ministries of

This interfaith service isn't only trying to blend religions, is also a way
to invite the public to visit St. John 's Episcopal Church. After the
service, at 11am, conversation about Islam and Islam in America will
