Universal Worship Service Centennial Celebration
May 8th, 7:00 to 8:00 PM
All welcome! Please Come!

"Oh Thou the sustainer of our bodies hearts and souls,
Bless all that we receive,
In thankfulness.” Amin

It is our wish to make this ceremony participatory and embodied. Please bring these items for the rituals: 
Divine Feminine - a candle & an apple
Hinduism - a sweet or fruit & a drum, bell, or conch shell 
Buddhism - a small sweet  
Zoroastrianism -  2 glasses, one with a refreshing drink or elixir in it
Judaism- bring 2 candles to light, something ceremonial to drink, & a piece of bread (or a stand in for bread), 
Christianity - a ceremonial drink & a wafer or bread 
Islam- a small bowl of fragrant water & a small cloth. 

AND of course just bringing yourself is also perfect...all rituals can be done symbolically.  

Thank You

The Universal Worship Service was created by Hazrat Inayat Khan in 1921 as a prayer service invoking the One Being through the world's major faith traditions. The service is officiated by clergy who are called cherags and cheragas, from the Persian word for 'lamp," meaning "Light Bearers."  Around the world, cherags and cheragas will be honoring this one-hundred year anniversary by performing the UW service in their own communities. The UW service is meant to show the universality of ALL religions, and we will honor all paths to the One equally. We will invoke the following Sacred Traditions: Divine Feminine, Indigenous Peoples, Hinduism, Buddhism, Zoroastrianism, Judaism, Christianity, Islam.  Brought to you by Cheragas:  Fehrunnisa Moore, Jilani Julie Esterly, Gitanjali Lori Rivera, Alima Christine Inayat Selberg, Vanessa Hafiza Ragan,  Karima Terry Forman.
