Project Conversion: One Man, Twelve Faiths
August - Islam
Islam represented a time of great personal healing. I harbored great hatred for Muslims after September 11th and never gave their faith nor predominantly Muslim Middle Eastern culture the fair and unbiased exploration it deserved until Project Conversion. I fully participated in the holy month of Ramadan, and the fasting taught me firsthand about the excesses I once indulged. Their commitment to prayer and reading of scripture are shining examples to the world of faith.
