CALLING ALL WOMEN! - OCT. 14 11 am-1 pm
Interfaith Gathering for Women - Saturday, Oct. 14, 11 a.m. – 1 p.m.)
One of the many things St. Margaret’s is known for is our warmth and hospitality. On Saturday, Oct. 14, we will have a wonderful opportunity to display this welcoming spirit as we open our doors, hearts and minds to the women of Plainview’s Masjid Al-Baqi.
The main purpose of this event is for women to share stories of faith; how it guides us, helps us navigate life’s challenges and how its presence shapes our daily lives. We will have a chance to learn more about the basics of the Islamic faith and share what it means to be Christian women in the Episcopal tradition as well as giving our guests a tour of our beautiful nave.
Since everyone, regardless of religion and culture, loves delicious food, a light lunch will be served as well as a variety of desserts.
I hope you’ll join me and “step out of the boat” and into this uncharted territory. Since that wonderful day in May when my family and I were invited to Masjid Al-Baqi, I have learned so much, made an inspiring and true friend named Sobhia, and feel more convinced than ever that there is much more that unites people than divides us.
“Bridges don’t fall from the sky,
they don’t rise from the ground,
people build them.”
