The Interfaith Mission Service is a cooperative of congregations and individuals working to co-create a Beloved Community.
The Huntsville interfaith study group, Abrahamic Prayers, will begin a year’s study on the Bhagavad Gita, the sacred Hindu text, on Thursday, Oct. 2, 2014, a day that coincides with the 145th anniversary of the birth of Gandhi, the devout Hindu who helped lead India’s revolution against Great Britain.
Dr. Laj Utreja, a retired mechanical engineer who is is also a teacher of yoga and meditation and the founder of the Institute of Spiritual Healing, will lead “Bhagavad Gita: Overview of Content and Essence” from 7 to 9 p.m., Oct. 2, in the parlor of St. Thomas Episcopal Church, 12200 Bailey Cove Road in Huntsville.
Dr. Utreja, who was born in India and is himself Hindu, is an experienced and respected voice in interfaith conversations in North Alabama.
Abrahamic Prayers is an informal, interfaith worship service that meets from 7 to 9 p.m. on the first Thursday of most months. The gatherings are always free and open to newcomers. Anyone who expects to attend is invited to notify Abrahamic Prayers coordinator Peter Meister at firstname.lastname@example.org so that adequate materials can be prepared.
