Arlington Interfaith Prayer Station and Spiritual Conversation “Two wings of the bird of humanity” – March 9, 2014

“O mankind! Be careful of your duty to your Lord Who created you from a single soul and from it created its mate and from them twain hath spread abroad a multitude of men and women.”
(Islam, The Qur’an, Sura 4 – Women)

“The world of humanity is possessed of two wings: the male and the female. So long as these two wings are not equivalent in strength, the bird will not fly. Until womankind reaches the same degree as man, until she enjoys the same arena of activity, extraordinary attainment for humanity will not be realized; humanity cannot wing its way to heights of real attainment. When the two wings . . . become equivalent in strength, enjoying the same prerogatives, the flight of man will be exceedingly lofty and extraordinary.”
(Baha’i Faith‘Abdu’l-Bahá, The Promulgation of Universal Peace, p. 375)

Dear friends!

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

The world of humanity is possessed of two wings: the male and the female.

The world of humanity is possessed of two wings: the male and the female.

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!

Until then, enjoy interpretive dance on “Equality between women and men”.
