Interfaith Devotional, Rea’s Home, February 16, 2013

On February 16, 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 people of diverse nationalities (China, Peru, Mexico, Brazil, India, 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; Julio Guillen, his wife, KC, & goddaughter, Esmeralda, for playing popular Christian songs, Qianting Yao for playing Oscar winning music on the keyboard; Merritt Skidmore-Hess for playing popular music on the keyboard; Mrs. Li for leading us in the traditional Chinese Jasmine song, Rui Zhang for playing a beautiful love song; Mike Czech for playing popular 80s songs, Calvin Hutcheon for inspiring us with the ukulele, and everyone for singing and jamming along with the musicians. 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 of “unity in diversity.”
