United Methodist Council of Bishops' Response to A Common Word Between Us and You
January 5, 2009
The United Methodist Council of Bishops' Response to A Common Word Between Us and You opens by welcoming the opportunity to use dialogue to identify both distinctive and common features of Christianity and Islam. Referencing the original letter's emphasis on a common love of neighbor, the authors describe how the Wesleyan tradition understands God's active work in nurturing this love. The response closes with a pledge to cooperatively seek peace and justice as the hallmarks of life.
