A Christian Family in a Muslim Community
Philos Project: What is it like raising a Christian family in a Muslim region?
Sarah: It’s really been better than in the States. We have more time together. We walk together to the store. [Abraham] is home for dinner. The society is very family-oriented (except when the men go out for coffee and hookah). Families are like, “Why didn’t you bring your kids?” There’s no soccer practice for us, but we’re involved. Our children have enjoyed things like gymnastics and martial arts.
Abraham: I think that may be more a function of our family choices than where we live. There are families that run around everywhere, same as you find in the States.
