This is weekly "Oasis News" of Silsilah Dialogue Movement for our friends and linkages around the world, printed also to a local newspaper of Zamboanga City (Mindanao, Philippines).We appreciate your comments and suggestions. Thanks
Silsilah Dialogue Movement, following a long tradition to send a message to the Muslims on the occasion of Ramadan and to the Christians on the occasion of Advent and Christmas time takes this opportunity to tell the Christians to be strong in this time of history when many Christians around the world suffer for their faith. This is true also in some parts of the Philippines, especially in Mindanao. We know that some Muslim leaders discourage Muslims to join the Christmas celebration. It was not like this before. This is an alarming sign. At the same time good Muslims and Christians suffer from this new radical understanding of relation among Muslims and Christians. It modifies the traditional way to celebrate together and share the joy of a specific religious group. Meanwhile we encourage to celebrate together Christmas and Ramadan in the proper way, we reaffirm that these are occasions to show respect and share the same joy as a sign of friendship, while each one is encouraged to be faithful to his/her faith and beliefs.
