'A heart broken open' by Ray Gaston is the next read chosen by the Good Faith Book Club. It is about an Anglican vicar "on his grassroots engagement with Islam — from inner-city parish ministry in Leeds to the streets of Karbala at a time of rising Islamophobia and 'The War on Terror'.
The book also includes input from some of his 'partners in dialogue'. Ray Gaston himself is now Interfaith Studies Tutor and Enabler with the Queen's Foundation for Ecumenical Theological Education. He has Methodist connections with the Birmingham District.
We will discuss this at our meeting on Saturday afternoon, 27th January and anyone is welcome to join us from 2pm.
