Interfaith Devotion, Rea’s Home, January 21, 2012

On January 21, 2012, Bahá’ís of Statesboro and friends gathered at Dan and Maria Fatima’s home for the monthly Interfaith Devotion. Please click below for a description and photos of the event.

Twenty-one people of diverse nationalities (Bangladesh, Brazil, China, Mexico, Peru, Russia, & USA) shared prayers and reflective readings on unity, peace, and healing from the holy scriptures of several world religions: Hinduism, Buddhism, Judaism, Christianity, Islam, and Bahá’í Faith. Bahá’u’lláh, prophet founder of the Bahá’í Faith, encourages us to “consort with the followers of all religions in a spirit of friendliness and fellowship” and to understand “Truth is one in all religions.” Special thanks to those who shared their artistic talents during the social part of the meeting: Rosemarie Stallworth-Clark for singing; Merritt Skidmore-Hess for playing keyboard; Joe Goldstein for singing & playing guitar; Tao Yang for singing Chinese & USA songs & playing guitar; Efadul Huq for reading poetry; and Xavier Best for reciting rap. This spiritual meeting was a nourishing unity feast of inspiring prayers & reflective readings, tasty food & drinks, beautiful songs, music, poetry, and rap, and warm camaraderie & laughter. We welcome people of all religions and cultures to these meetings.
