Moved by Islam, Priest Embraces Two FaithsAnn Holmes Redding, an Episcopal priest, was inspired by a local Muslim leader. Now she's been suspended by her church for one year after announcing she is both Christian and Muslim.
The Episcopal Church has suspended one of its priests, Ann Holmes Redding, for one year after her announcement this summer that she is both a Christian and a Muslim. A local Muslim leader's speech to Redding's church two years ago inspired her to begin attending Muslim prayer services while she was still serving her local diocese.
