UK Christian festival features Islamic “worship” chants
Greenbelt 2017 : The Common Good - Facebook

Imagine learning Quranic chants from an anti-Christ religion, to worship our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ? That’s exactly what’s going on at a so-called “Christian” festival this month. Christian worshipers at the annual Greenbelt Christian festival near London can now learn Islamic worship chants to Allah.
It’s a Chrislamic syncretism that will be taught to kids, teens and adults August 25 – 28. The social justice/environmental festival is called Greenbelt 2017: The Common Good. Which explains a lot. The chanting lessons are taught at the festival by the Ansari Qadiri Rifai Tariqa, an international non-profit group, which invites Christians to learn how to use basic universal Sufi chants. Greenbelt Christian leaders say the chants are rhythmic, and have healing properties. Festival-goers are invited to “come, enter in, learn and participate”.
