Visit to Holy Trinity Anglican Church in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria

I had the privilege to officiate and preach at Holy Trinity Anglican Church in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria this morning. Thought I would share some photos. And many thanks to Fr. Edward and the congregation for a warm welcome. People were most impressed by my son’s piano piece (by Mozart) during Communion.

See are some photos:

Duane Miller and Bill Musk: Anglican Contributions to the Church’s Mission to/among Muslims

It was a pleasure to work on this article with Bishop Bill Musk, formerly the regional bishop of North Africa. In it, we draw on decades of practical ministry experience in our different contexts and share what we think are some of the strengths of the Anglican way in relation to the Church’s witness in the Muslim world.

Christian Mission in the Middle Ages

Mission to Islam, Mission to Post-modernity? Interview w/ Stephen Bedard.

I recently sat down with Stephen Bedard—he in Canada, I in Spain—to talk about the Church’s mission to Islam, and specifically about my new book I Will Give them an Everlasting Name: Pastoral Care for Christ’s Converts from Islam (Regnum, 2020).

He asked some great questions and I really enjoyed the exploration of how ministry to ex-Muslims overlaps in some important ways with ministry to people in late modern, post-Christian (post-secular?) societies.

You can get the Kindle version here and the print version here. Here site interview. Make sure to subscribe to Stephen’s YouTube channel.

Anglican Compass on *I Will Give Them an Everlasting Name*

What a pleasure to be interviewed by Anglican Compass on my new book, I Will Give Them an Everlasting Name: Pastoral Care for Christ’s Converts from Islam. (Kindle version here.)

Here is one of the questions:

What’s the backstory to this book? What led you to write it?

After years in the Middle East, we were back in the USA for almost four years. During that time I did a lot of teaching and preaching at churches in Texas. I was happily surprised to find the number of pastors who would say things like, “Oh yes, we have a guy from Saudi attending our church now!” or “A refugee family from Iraq is now coming to our foodbank and they told us they converted from Islam.” Usually, the follow up would be something like, “We’re not really sure how to care for them, though…”

That’s why I wrote this book. You can have a seasoned and loving pastor with decades of experience, but this area of Christianity is so new that very few people have any experience in it.
