Muslims Break Fast In Anglican Church

Excitement has continued to trail the action of St. Andrew’s Anglican Church in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirate (UAE), which on Friday opened its doors to serve Iftar (dinner) to Muslims in an unprecedented ecumenical gesture during the holy month of Ramadan. Muslims and non-Muslims alike gathered for the fast-breaking evening meal at the church in the heart of the UAE capital.
