The Women's Interfaith Network Celebrates Holidays in Sarasota, Florida

Salaam Aleikum/Peace Be With You , Marty Haugen Only You, O God
"Salaam Aleikum, May peace be in your hearts, may peace be in your homes, may peace be in your land, may peace be in our world"

Today I  joined a wonderful group of women of faith from the Women's Interfaith Network for lunch and festivities to celebrate the holidays. 

Arlene Pearlman and Bridget Mary Meehan

As members of God's family, we work individually and in our respective communities and coalitions for justice, peace and equality.

 As I gathered today with my sisters from many faith traditions, I experienced joy in the presence of God who is with us and with all people.

During this time of chaos and threats of violence towards Muslims, we wear pins to express our solidarity that our sisters and brothers are safe with us. Next Saturday, many of us will visit our local Mosque in Sarasota to celebrate our blessed kinship. Shalom, Salaam, Pax!
