Interfaith Devotional, Rea’s Home, September 24, 2016

On September 24, 2016, Bahá’ís of Statesboro, Baha’i Club members of Georgia Southern University, 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-one people of diverse nationalities (China, India, Peru, Brazil, 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 songs and for everyone who accompanied them with percussion instruments. Also, we thank Glory Goldstein 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.”
