"Reverend Andrew Butler, Rector of St. John’s parish since September 1, 2010, decided to have this service in order to demonstrate that both Islam and Christianity stem from Abrahamic roots, as well as to dispell negative stereotypes about the Muslim faith."This seems oddly appropriate for those who find themselves left behind.
"During the interfaith service, verses from the Holy Qur’an will complement readings from the Holy Bible, including during Communion, embracing the traditions of both religions."
"The Reverend went on to say, 'We are trying to find ways to blend our community through religion. It’s hard, but we can accomplish it through this organic event and working together through outreach and other ministries of compassion.'”

Muslim call to prayer to ring out at Episcopal Church on "Left Behind Sunday."
In comments to my last post, R. Sherman pointed to this link about an "interfaith service" at St. John’s Parish in Montclair (Diocese of Newark) to be held the day after the predicted "Rapture Saturday" of May 21, 2011.
