Arlington Interfaith Prayer Station and Spiritual Conversation “Gender Equality”

“It is my hope that women of the East, as well as their Western sisters, will progress rapidly until humanity shall reach perfection.
God’s Bounty is for all and gives power for all progress. When men own the equality of women there will be no need for them to struggle for their rights! One of the principles then of Bahá’u’lláh is the equality of sex.”
~ Bahá’í Faith, ‘Abdu’l-Bahá, 1911, “Paris Talks”

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.

This Sunday, September 28th, 2014, we invite you and your loves ones to an Interfaith Prayer Station and Spiritual Conversation in Arlington on the theme of “Gender Equality“.

We’ll start at 7:30 pm with light refreshments followed by reading, at 8:00 pm, of selected Holy Writings and Prayers. We have many books of prayers from different faith traditions but if you wish, feel free to bring your own prayers or inspiring writings. We will 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!

Until then, enjoy the inspiring talk given by the actress and UN Goodwill Ambassador Emma Watson during the HeForShe Special Event at United Nations Headquarters in New York on September 20, 2014, and consider adding your voice and deeds to the movement for gender equality.

In His service,

Mitko

“Let your vision be world-embracing, rather than confined to your own self.”
