Arlington Prayer Station “Seek The Gate” – Sunday, Oct 20, 2013, 7:30 pm

“O PEOPLE of the earth! To attain the ultimate retreat in God, the True One, are we to seek a Gate other than this exalted Being?…”
(Baha’i Faith, The Bab, Selections from the Writings of the Bab, p. 64)

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.

Arlington Prayer Station “Seek The Gate”

This Sunday, October 20, 2013, in celebration of the Birth of the Báb, the Forerunner of the Bahá’í Faith, I invite you and your loves ones to an Interfaith Prayer Station in Arlington on the theme of “Seek the Gate“.

The Báb (1819-1850) was the Prophet-Herald of the Baha’i Faith, whose mission was to proclaim the imminent arrival of “Him Whom God shall make manifest,” namely Baha’u’llah (1817-1892), the Founder of the Baha’i Faith. (The title Báb means “the Gate” in Arabic.)

We’ll start at 7:30 pm with light refreshments followed by reading, at 8:00 pm, of selected Holy Writings and Prayers. I have many books of prayers from different faith traditions but if you wish, feel free to bring your own prayers or inspiring writings. In addition to Holy Words, we shall uplift and refresh our souls with inspiring musical selections and we’ll conclude with tea and sweets.

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. Please let me know if you plan on coming so I can plan the refreshments!
