Borsch cooking fund-raiser on Thursday and Interfaith Prayer Station “God is One” on Sunday

“Know thou assuredly that the essence of all the Prophets of God is one and the same. Their unity is absolute.”
(Baha’i Faith, Bahá’u’lláh, Gleanings from the Writings of Bahá’u’lláh, p. 78)

“God is one, but he has innumerable forms. He is the creator of all and He himself takes the human form.”
(Sikhism, Guru Nanak)

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.

The art of Borscht cooking

But first of all, please join my roommate Aleksey at a fund-raiser he is hosting  on Thursday evening for the Volunteers of America Bailey’s Crossroad Community Shelter. In his own words:

In order to raise funds for the residents in the Bailey’s Crossroads Shelter, I am holding cooking class to teach my friends the art of Borscht cooking.   This soup’s recipe followed my mother’s family all the way in their migration from one end of the historical Russian then Soviet Empire to the other. My mother cooks it really well and my father loves it. This recipe celebrates the love for the land left behind and the hospitality of the new one, and more so the blend of two distinct cultures, Russian and Turkmen.
We are living in the age when our values and culture should support good deeds and intentions. The living example  of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá, my parents and grandparents always always encouraged in me those humane aspirations to fulfill the purpose of our earthly existence and deserve the favors of the Divine Providence.
