A church should face East where possible, that is, the altar will be at the eastern end

Your right Rod, the congregation should be facing "east in readiness for the second coming of Jesus"

The symbolism is where Jesus will come again, for example in the Book of Matthew 24:27:

For as lightning that comes from the east is visible even in the west, so will be the coming of the Son of Man.

or even the fact that the Star that symbolised the birth of Jesus appeared in the East (Matthew 2:1-2):

After Jesus was born in Bethlehem in Judea, during the time of King Herod, Magi from the east came to Jerusalem and asked, “Where is the one who has been born king of the Jews? We saw his star when it rose and have come to worship him.

Didn't know that. So churches do in fact face the right way for muslims.

When i worked nights at a place once we usec to get a muslim fella pull into the carpark so he could have a quick pray.

Do they not just face east to pray?

If you go east or west far enough you will hit the kabaal or whatever it is :D

No, they pray to Mecca, their holy city which holds the tomb of their prophet Mohammed
Go to any hotel in a Muslim country and somewhere in every room there will an arrow pointing towards Mecca so that they know the direction in which to kneel when they prey.
Go on board an airline from a Muslim country (Emirates, Etihad, Gulf Air etc) and there will be a display with an arrow that moves so that it continually points to Mecca.

I buy the Sun every day, the reasoning being is that I know it's crap to start with so I don't believe anything in it, I just read it for the laugh. :lol:

And yes Phil, you need therapy :thumbup: ................ I'll put your name down at my treatment centre :lol: :lol: :lol:
