Interfaith Devotional, Rea’s Home, November 1, 2014

On November 1, 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-three people of diverse nationalities (China, Nigeria, Zambia, Peru, Brazil, Trinidad, 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 that “Truth is one in all religions.” Special thanks to those who shared their artistic talents during the social part of the meeting: Mike Czech and Joe Goldstein for singing unity songs and popular 80’s songs, Mrs. Li and other Chinese friends for singing the traditional Chinese Jasmine song, and Daronte Starks for leading us in inspirational songs. This spiritual meeting was a nourishing unity feast of inspirational prayers & reflective readings, tasty food & drinks, beautiful songs & music, and warm camaraderie & laughter. Also, everyone enjoyed eating the “Tres Leches” (three milks) Mexican cake in celebration of Dan Rea’s birthday. People of all religions and cultures are welcome at these devotional celebrations of “unity in diversity.”
