“The Honey of Reunion” Arlington Interfaith Prayer Station and Spiritual Conversations

“The true seeker hunteth naught but the object of his quest, and the lover hath no desire save union with his beloved. Nor shall the seeker reach his goal unless he sacrifice all things. That is, whatever he hath seen, and heard, and understood, all must he set at naught, that he may enter the realm of the spirit, which is the City of God. Labor is needed, if we are to seek Him; ardor is needed, if we are to drink of the honey of reunion with Him; and if we taste of this cup, we shall cast away the world.” ~  Bahá’í Faith, Bahá’u’lláh — Seven Valleys and Four Valleys

Dear friends,

I am trying to follow in the steps of my dad (and uncle and grandfather) in becoming a beekeeper. Having observed from aside and assisted from time to time, it is a new adventure for me to do the work myself. Inspecting the bees with my daughters yesterday, I was relieved to see the bees seem to be healthy and they have some honey stored for the winter — whether it is enough for them to cross that crucial threshold of growth yet remains to be seen…

Coming across another honey-related reminder from the Baha’i Writings in my morning reading, I decided to choose this as the topic for our next Prayer Station.

So, what makes your life sweet? What nurtures your soul? What makes your heart tender? Prayer, spiritual conversations, music, fellowship, tea poured in peace and sweetened with organic honey, home-made banana bread baked with love and shared with smile?

Whatever the answer might be, sharing prayers and inspiring conversations with friends and befriended strangers alike gets us all closer to the Creator and recharges us for the week ahead.

Please join us on Monday, November 16th, 2015 for an Interfaith Prayer Station devoted to “The Honey of Reunion”!

“The Honey of Reunion” Interfaith Prayer Station and Spiritual Conversations

We will start at 7 pm with dinner and continue with prayers, Holy Writings from different Faith traditions, and a friendly conversation on what for each one of us — regardless of our background or religious tradition is the Honey of reunion with the Creator. We will uplift and refresh our souls with inspiring songs 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 and send you the directions! Until then, enjoy this inspiring episode of Reunion:

And remember, all are welcome to the circle of unity!

“Let your vision be world-embracing, rather than confined to your own self.” ~ From the Writings of Bahá’u’lláh
