Interfaith Devotional, Rea’s Home, January 18, 2014

On January 18, 2014, Bahá’ís of Statesboro and their friends gathered at Dan and Maria Fatima Rea’s home for the monthly Interfaith Devotional & Potluck Dinner. Please click below for a description and photos of the event.

Twenty people of diverse nationalities (China, Nigeria, India, Peru, Brazil, Columbia, and USA) shared prayers and reflective readings on unity and peace 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 that “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 singing unity songs; Merritt Skidmore-Hess for playing and singing keyboard hits, Blessing Odion for playing the keyboard and singing Christian songs, the Chinese students for singing the traditional Chinese Jasmine song, and Somnath Chattopadhyay for singing a Jamaican song. Also special thanks to Uchi Nwankwo for taking the photos. This spiritual meeting was a nourishing unity feast of inspirational 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.”
