West Shore Unitarian Universalist Church

Inner Jihad
by Reverend Kathleen Rolenz

February 5, 2012

The distortion of the Islamic teaching of "jihad" into a word that means "terrorism" in the minds of Americans is tragic. The spiritual meaning of the word is by far the most important meaning for Islam, and it refers to the spiritual struggle with needs, wants, passions, commandments and aspirations - a familiar struggle to us all - as we try to be the best people we can be. This Sunday, we will celebrate a Welcoming Ceremony for West Shore's new members.
