In response to questions and concerns about refugees being resettled throughout Minnesota, LSS developed a resource including accurate information about foundations of the Muslim faith.

Read LSS’s description of the background for this discussion guide here:

In 2014, Minnesota resettled 2,232 refugees, the highest per capita in the country. Many of these new neighbors are Muslim. Because Minnesota has always had the reputation as a very welcoming state, we are sure to welcome more Muslim neighbors in the future. To learn more, take a look at the LSS refugee facts and figures document.

“My Neighbor is Muslim” is a 7-week small group study with contributions from Luther College Professor Todd Green and commentary from faculty at Luther Seminary and LSS staff. Our intention is simply that this resource will open doors, minds, and hearts and dispel stereotypes and myths about Muslim neighbors just enough to start more conversations.
