From the GA website - Ecumenical and Interfaith Relations Committee members on Tuesday approved recommending the “Understanding Christian-Muslim Relations” paper to the full Assembly, while referring the “Christians and Jews” paper back to the PC(USA) offices that prepared it.
The common thread of tension between both reports is the lack of inclusion of Middle Eastern Christian voices, according to several committee members.
All who spoke during open hearings, resource comments and committee debate agreed there was much to celebrate in both papers. Committee members appeared eager to get the Christian-Muslim document to the full Assembly and into pews. People from large and small churches said it’s time to learn more about Islam.
