I just got this email from a buddy of mine; it has a hope-full message. Enjoy!
“We are in Senegal for a Muslim Christmas. We are seeing our dear friends and the places where we were Peace Corps Volunteers many decades ago. Senegal is 95% Muslim and they celebrate Christmas! It turns out that Mohamed the Prophet recognized Jesus as a Prophet and there are lots of examples of Muslim-Christian bonds and relationships here. So New Years greetings to our Muslim brothers-sisters around the world also!!”
