Churches that are so focused on survival often find it difficult to evangelize. I notice this in my own diocese, where so many parishes are concerned with maintaining themselves that they wall themselves off from the wider world. This is understandable, but a mistake! The personal invitation is key, as is having the church visible in the public.

Japan is not alone. The scope and implications of the drop in world population over the next 80 years is difficult to contemplate. I go often to Japan, as my daughter-in-law is Japanese. Those who remain will continue the tradition of seeking to reconcile traditional Islamic daily prayer with the peculiarities of Arctic astronomy. Moe and other leaders of the mosque contacted Islamic scholars in Saudi Arabia, Egypt and Kuwait, posing the question of the midnight sun and its bearing on the timing of daily prayer. It simply imposed a schedule from a distant locale.
The search for a better solution took a turn in April of this year when the imams of the two mosques travelled to Sweden to debate the prayer-time issue, and the separate but related question of fasting during Ramadan, with Islamic scholars from Denmark, Sweden and Finland, as well as representatives from the communities in Alta and Hammerfest. After much deliberation, the scholars made a suggestion, essentially proposing to localise the two afternoon prayers — Zuhr and Asr — by determining the daily highest position of the Sun as observed from each individual Arctic mosque.
In winter, this observation would be indirect, via calculation, but it would still be tied to each individual location.
As for the earlier and later prayers each day, the schedule would introduce an adjustment, keyed to Mecca sunrise and sunset, to round out a balanced daily worship schedule. The process is ongoing. Not everyone adheres to the new schedule: a few congregants continue to follow Mecca time, while others remain attached to their countries of origin — Yusuf pointed out two members of Al Rahma who time their prayers to sunrise and sunset in Paris, their home town.
We were on the back steps of Al Rahma just after evening prayer, as lingering worshippers chatted in the small lot behind the green house.
