Some churches do sharing, others don't. I have seen Methodists house Lutherans while they were building a church.

Some churches do not allow steeples, probably a good idea. They snap off in a hurricane or tornado and land on the neighbors. One such church in Orlando had to worship in a theater for weeks.

What a disgrace.
They come to our counties, change our way of live and now pray in our church?
What a disgrace

Recall the story of the camel who wanted just to warm his cold nose inside his master's tent.

Eventually the whole camel came inside, so the owner had to go outside.

Big mistake.

Let me ask you a question or two or three.

How sure are you of the ultimate efficacy of the message, the Gospel, of Christ Jesus?

Who do you think is undeserving of being exposed to and immersed in His message?

If the Faithful receive just one person into their midst who, by some assistance from the Holy Spirit, ultimately GETS the message of the Gospel, just how important to the Body of Christ is that one person?
...

Your analogy of the camel is not an apt analogy or metaphor. The camel, itself a possession, is the most preferred beast of burden in the desert. The camel is a servant; useful, reliable, durable, with a number of essential purposes, and you are right in that it does not belong inside the master's tent - except during a sand storm.

However, Islam and the Muslim person is not in any way a "beast of burden" to the Christian. The Muslim may be more or less of a theological adversary to the Christian, at times. But, the Muslim is not a servant or ever to be regarded in servitude to you or me. He or she is simply a human being. The Muslim worships the same God as do you and I, and for that matter, the same God of the Universe as every person who understands that Being itself is the essence of Spirit.

The foundational message of Jesus Christ, the Triangle of Light, Life and Love, is not well understood and sometimes it is apparently least understood by its own supposedly most fervent advocates. It is a universal message of Eternal Life conquering death and can and should be acceptable to a person of ANY Faith.

... because muslims regard all Christians as THEIR servants, i.e., dhimmis.

And did you even bother to read this story?

"The familiar sounds of Christian hymns have been replaced with Islamic prayer in the chapel this Friday lunchtime and the church priest with the imam from the neighbouring mosque."

Islam has REPLACED, not shared, Christianity in St John's Episicopal Church.

2Cor 6:15 And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?

Your muslims friends don't celebrate Easter because, like most gnostics, they don't believe Jesus was either crucified and/or resurrected.

Recall the "parable" about the arab who allowed his camel to warm his cold nose in the tent; in the end the camel came in, and he was out, which is what muslims will eventually do to St John's.

It is called "Biological Jihad" once the Muslim has more members than the Christian church they will declare 'victory' and claim it for themselves. As Muslims tell the world,the only perfect religion is Islam, even if they have to steal and murder to be perfect.
