About Salam Austin
Salam Austin promotes:
Understanding between Christians and Muslims
Service to those Immigrants Who Are in Need
Friendships that cross boundaries
Salam Austin is where Christians and Muslims meet to share friendship, food, and faith. We are sick of the hate and fear that keeps Christians and Muslims separated and often fearful of each other.
We are inspired by the words of Jesus who lived in the multicultural land of Palestine 2,000 years ago and taught his followers that everyone they came across was their neighbor and that you should love strangers like you love your own family.
We don't know if we can live up fully to Jesus' teaching about love but we do think we can start with a hand of friendship, a willingness to help in anyway possible, and a greeting of "peace" or "Salam."
