Much controversy is stirring about the Muslim tradition of women’s wearing of a head scarf or veil. What is this about? How do we balance religious tolerance and women’s rights? What do we make of this as westerners? Let’s explore this charged topic together. You’re invited to bring a scarf or hat to the service if You choose.
