Interfaith Devotional, Rea’s Home, January 19, 2013

On January 19, 2013, Bahá’ís of Statesboro and their friends gathered at Dan and Maria Fatima’s home for the monthly Interfaith Devotional. Please click below for a description and photos of the event.

Thirty-seven people of diverse nationalities (China, Peru, Mexico, Brazil, Bangladesh, and USA) shared prayers and reflective readings on unity, peace, and healing from the holy scriptures of several world religions: Christianity, Hinduism, Buddhism, Judaism, Islam, and the 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: Joe Goldstein for playing guitar & singing unity songs; Qianting Yao for playing popular Oscar winning music on the keyboard; Merritt Skidmore-Hess for playing popular music on the keyboard; and Calvin Ezekiel Zjhra Hutcheon for inspiring us with the ukulele. This spiritual meeting was a nourishing unity feast of inspiring prayers & reflective readings, tasty food & drinks, beautiful songs, music, and warm camaraderie & laughter. People of all religions and cultures are welcome at these devotional celebrations.
