One of the many benefits of interfaith community is sharing and learning from one another. Over the years of interacting through the Casey Multifaith Network, members of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and the Ahmadiyya Muslim Association have developed a friendship that goes beyond the confinements of meetings and get-togethers. Visits to each other’s places of worship, sharing meals together, and visiting one another in our homes are all part of this extension of friendship.
