Successful “Pre-Emptive Prayer Service for Peace”

On Sunday, October 14th the Abrahamic Faiths Peacemaking Initiative held their “Pre-Emptive Prayer Service for Peace” event at the Iman Cultural Center in Culver City. During the program we had a chance to listen to different prayer chants and the children’s choir from All Saints Episcopal Church. The elders from each faith shared some of their wisdom by reflecting on their interfaith relationships and the younger generation shared their testimonials about their own interfaith experiences. The program came to a close with a blessing from each faith tradition. This event shows that we can always learn something new from each other. The importance of striving for an understanding and acceptance of another person’s beliefs rather than settling for tolerance for another faith was displayed over and over again throughout the event and is something that we should all strive for.
