Ramadan Dinner

Ramadan Mubarak

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.

 

Ramadan Dinner

Warm, friendly people,

Shias, from India and Iran.

Women modestly covered,

men in summer garb.

Embraces and smiles.

Delicious food.

Ramadan–fasting, introspection,

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.

Conversation.

More smiling faces and female hugs.

Getting late.

Hope we gather again.

    Sounds like a lovely time, especially now when solidarity with Muslims is so important.
