‘Blessed Ramadan’ signs springing up in Minnesota

From The Twin Cities-

“Blessed Ramadan” signs have been popping up in Minnesota yards this week, a welcoming gesture to area Muslims led by the Minnesota Council of Churches.

This past weekend, members of 17 area churches — including several Episcopal, Lutheran and Methodist congregations — were given the signs to put up in their yards. About 1,800 were distributed in the Twin Cities and Duluth, said the Rev. Canon Peg Chemberlin, chief executive officer of the Minnesota Council of Churches.

The yard signs, which read “To Our Blessed Neighbors BLESSED RAMADAN” are meant as a show of support for Muslims, who have been the recent target of “significant negativity,” she said.
