About the video

This video documents the story of Pastor James Movel Wuye and Imam Muhammad Nurayn Ashafa how they journeyed from enmity to friendship. The two Nigerian clergymen had been sworn enemies for years and even attempted to have the other killed. A chance meeting in 1995 marked the beginning of the process of reconciliation. By truthfully acknowledging their theological differences and exposing detrimental misperceptions, the pastor and the imam have set forth a model for reconciliation between Christians and Muslims across Nigeria and throughout the world. They believe peace will be achieved through education and dialogue. Wuye and Ashafa appeal to scripture as the basis for reconciliation. Hence, peace and justice is restored through religion, even as it was first violated through religion.

Post-screening discussion

After the screening, there will be a time for participants to share their response and exchange views. Through this, we could explore how to appropriate some of the lessons from Pastor Wuye and Imam Ashafas story for our context and perhaps discover a way through the confusion into clarity and conviction.
