Anglican ministers Brett Hall and David Ould have been cultivating friendships with the Imam at their local mosque in Minto.
After a stabbing attack on Saturday 10 September that left grandfather Wayne Greenhalgh in hospital with serious injuries, Hall and Ould visited Minto mosque with a message of support.
In a letter they delivered to the mosque, seven Anglican ministers from south west Sydney said, “We know that the overwhelming majority of our Muslim neighbours want nothing more than to live peaceful lives, working together with everyone else to make Australia a great place to be.”
The letter encouraged all people in the local community to “rise to the challenge of reaching out in love and friendship to our Muslim neighbours at this difficult time.”
Some prayer points to help
- Pray for peaceful relationships between Muslims and the rest of the community.
- Pray that we would all be given the opportunity to get to know a Muslim.
