Day #125: Give with the Center for Christian Understanding of Islam in Richmond, VA 1
Richmond, VA

Today, we toured a 2000 sqft facility filled with information about the Muslim world. Each room was impressively arranged like a museum with authentic clothing, photography, and artifacts.

The Center for Christian Understanding of Islam is a place where "Christians can learn about Islam and grow in their own faith." They are a resource rich with firsthand experience and knowledge about tradition, history, and customs.

After our tour, the founder of CCUI took us to a local mosque. The Imam gave us permission to look around. After taking off our shoes, we entered the room where their prayer services are held and learned more about the traditions.

CCUI is a free resource for learning about Islam. They give tours to individuals and groups, and offer a variety of discussion groups and classes.

Do you have friends or family members who are Muslim? Have you ever been to a mosque?
