Prayer Station Invitation: Parliament of Religions

O people! Consort with the followers of all religions in a spirit of friendliness and fellowship. Thus hath the day-star of His sanction and authority shone forth above the horizon of the decree of God, the Lord of the worlds.”
(Baha’u’llah, Tablets of Baha’u’llah, p. 21)

Dear friends!

What nurtures your soul? What makes your heart tender? Prayer, music, fellowship, food cooked with love, tea poured in peace, cake shared with smile? Whatever the answer might be, sharing prayers with friends gets us all closer to the Creator and recharges us for the week ahead.

This Monday, October 5, I invite you and your loves ones to a special interfaith Prayer Station in Arlington with the participation of Mrs. Ninie G. Syarikin who will be an Ambassador to the Parliament of Religions (PoR) in Melbourne, Australia later this year. She will share with us some of her Islamic poetry and about the mission of PoR. Of particular interest to the Baha’is among us would be the fact that it was in 1893 in Chicago at the Parliament of Religions that the name of Baha’u’llah was first publicly proclaimed in the West.

I have many books of prayers from different faith traditions but if you wish, feel free to bring your own prayer.

We’ll start at 7:30 pm with light refreshments followed by reading, at 8:00 pm, of selected Holy Writings from diverse religions. We’ll also uplift and refresh our souls with music, and offer prayers as the spirit moves us.  We’ll conclude with tea and cake.

We’ll also say prayers for anyone in need, so if you can’t join us and would like to request prayers please contact me!
