Extremist ideologies have no place in a faith that is built on community and compassion. However, we also recognize that their proliferation is a complex problem that uses subtle methods to spread fear and distrust.

We have and will continue to consult professional experts who can provide the appropriate procedures and tools for confronting violent extremism, in and outside of our immediate community.
