The Interfaith Roundtable is sponsored by The Andrew K. Coffman Funeral Home
and F&M Trust
. Raed Haq met Rabbi Mark at a Quiznos. A bit of a surprising place to find a guest for a show exploring interfaith stories, right? However, it did lead to a wonderful discussion on Islam and the skewed perception many have on the religion. A member of The Islamic Society of Western Maryland
, Raed re-discovered Islam in college and has since found a home in the religion. He and Rabbi Mark dive into the differences of Shia and Sunni, break down the context of some passages typically used against Muslims, and find a common goal in wanting others to understand their faith. In the second half, Rabbi Mark is joined by Reverend Les McIntosh, Sr. of Impact Ministries
in Hagerstown. They discuss his philosophy on spreading the gospel, as well as Impact's contributions to the local community. You can find out more information about the Hagerstown Area Religious Council at harccoalition.org
