Multilingual Interfaith Prayer Station in Arlington at 7:30 pm on Sundays

“O ye close and dear friends of ‘Abdu’l-Bahá!
In the Orient scatter perfumes,
And shed splendours on the West.
Carry light unto the Bulgar,
And the Slav with life invest.” ~ ‘Abdu’l-Bahá, Baha’i Faith

In the past few Sundays, I had a variety of friends whose languages use the Cyrillic alphabet come to the Prayer Station turning it into a Cyrillic spiritual gathering of a sort.  I expect the two brothers of Thesaloniki, Cyril and Methodius, whose students spread their alphabet and the teachings of the Gospel to the Slavs and beyond, would have been delighted.

Multilingual Interfaith Prayer Stations and Spiritual Conversations in Arlington

The next three Sundays my Russian-Turkmeni friend Aleksey will host the Multilingual Interfaith Prayer Station at its usual time at 7:30 pm. No restrictions on alphabets, languages, or religions!

So, 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.
