Interfaith Devotional, Rea’s Home, February 22, 2014

On February 22, 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, videos, and photos of the event.

Twenty-five people of diverse nationalities (China, Nigeria, India, Peru, Brazil, Kurdistan, Trinidad, 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; Mike Czech for singing rousing 80’s hits; the Chinese students for singing the traditional Chinese Jasmine song, and Chris Pugh for telling humorous stories about his multi-faith schooling. Also special thanks to Daronte Starks for taking photos and Anunay Bhattacharya for taking the photos and videos. 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.”
