Lunch at Cole Community Church in Boise, Idaho, is not an ordinary church potluck. The guest list is half Christian, half Muslim. The meat is lamb, cooked according to the Muslim halal style. The meal is a “peace feast,” started by Nick and Laura Armstrong, who had lived in predominantly Muslim countries for many years and were startled by the animosity toward Muslims they discovered upon their return to the United States. The purpose of the meals is for those gathered to talk about their faiths, not to argue about them. People ask each other questions like, “What do you believe God expects of you here on Earth? What do you wish people/the community understood about your faith?” (Idaho Statesman, April 1).
