A couple of American-born Muslims took a road trip around the country to visit different areas, experience different cultures, and find and pray at different mosques. One of the places was Memphis, where the blogger appears impressed by a small (but hopefully growing) interfaith community that is bridging many of these chasms that lead to violence, hate, and war. Just another example of the positive things that should be encouraged and promoted to expand, not just in Memphis, but America and the world.

I first met Chip in April this year for a standup show I did for the Memphis Islamic Center, a ridiculously awesome mosque being built here that we’ll talk about in a coming post. The Ordmans are a part of the Memphis InterReligious Group that encourage Muslims, Christians and Jews to hang out with each other and attend each other’s services. I’ve done a lot of traveling across the country and I’ve never seen an interfaith community like Memphis where a guy like Chip comes to mosques for Friday prayers and chat about the khutbah sermons afterwards with congregants.
