Dear Franklin Graham…

I was terribly saddened by your recent statement about Muslims. Your words had an effect on me opposite to the effect it had on the thousands who “liked” your message.
Your statement reminded me of some horrible scenes in American and Christian history, events I hope are never repeated. Your words made me want to become all the more dedicated to being a peacemaker between people who, because of their faith, distrust and distance themselves from others.
I wonder if you would be willing to listen to a fellow Evangelical, Jeff Burns, share this story about how God changed his heart towards Muslims. It will take less than fifteen minutes of your time.

I had a similar experience many years ago, and I pray you will experience a change of heart too.
You are in my prayers, and I hope I will be in yours as well –
Brian McLaren
