Arlington Interfaith Prayer Station and Spiritual Conversation “The Eternal Covenant”

Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, when I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah:  Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day when I took them by the hand to lead them out of the land of Egypt.
(Judaism / Christianity, King James Bible, Hebrews, 8:8-9)

Dear friends,
What nurtures your soul? What makes your heart tender? Prayer, music, fellowship, tea poured in peace, homemade banana bread baked with love and shared with a smile? Whatever the answer might be, sharing music and prayers with friends gets us all closer to the Creator.

Arlington Interfaith Prayer Station and Spiritual Conversation “The Eternal Covenant”

This Sunday, November 23rd, 2014, we invite you and your loves ones to an Interfaith Prayer Station and Spiritual Conversation in Arlington on the theme of “The Eternal Covenant“.

In the name of Allah, Most Gracious, Most Merciful.
For the covenants (of security and safeguard enjoyed) by the Quraish,
Their covenants (covering) journeys by winter and summer–
Let them adore the Lord of this House,
Who provides them with food against hunger, and with security against fear (of danger).
(Islam, Quran, Surah 106 – The Tribe of Quraysh)

Gather them, then, together around this Divine Law, the covenant of which Thou hast established with all Thy Prophets and Thy Messengers, and Whose ordinances Thou hast written down in Thy Tablets and Thy Scriptures. Raise them up, moreover, to such heights as will enable them to perceive Thy Call.”
(Bahá’í FaithBaha’u’llah, Prayers and Meditations by Baha’u’llah, p. 106)

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 planning to attend so I can plan the refreshments accordingly.

Until then, enjoy this informative video about the “Eternal Covenant”.

In His service,

Mitko
