Last night members of the Unitarian-Universalist Church of the Brazos Valley were invited to a Ramadan Dinner at the Islamic Center of College Station/Bryan. I/We had a wonderful time.
Warm, friendly people,
Shias, from India and Iran.
Women modestly covered,
men in summer garb.
Embraces and smiles.
cleansing the body and mind, self-control.
Discussion on prayer, beliefs (we shared our own),
segregation (or not) of the sexes in worship.
Dinner at 9.
More smiling faces and female hugs.
Hope we gather again.
