"Thanks and thanks again to Him who offers to the man whom the sorrows of life have assaulted and left naked–offers to him the fig leaf of the Word with which he can cover his wretchedness." -Søren Kierkegaard

VIDEO: Dinner With The Sheikh

Posted in Friends, Videos, Videos By Me by matt on Tuesday, March 12, 2013

Some mutual friends introduced me to this amazing Sheikh, and I occasionally get to visit him and his family. This most recent time was especially awesome because he had a musician friend in town, so we had a jam sesh after dinner. Push play to watch a couple minutes from our time together.

A quick bit about the Sheikh: he’s a passionate guy and takes every chance he get to bring differing perspectives and faiths together to make peace. He’s had his mosque blown up, his family threatened and injured, and yet he presses on.

Please pray for this man! I’ve grown to admire and respect him.
