Whatcom County's Sikh's are hosting an Interfaith Prayer Service! In addition to local faith leaders and civic leaders sharing prayers and peace (including Echoes), the key note speaker will be Noemi Ban, a Holocaust survivor who resides here in our county.
This is a great way to begin the new year, collaborating together for the good of the larger community.
The Sikh community also welcomes anyone who wishes to stay for their religious service, from 4-8pm. As described in the Facebook event (check out the posts in this event for more helpful info), "Gurdwara" is the name for a Sikh temple or church. "Gurdwara" means "door of the Guru", and it is where the Sikh scripture resides. The Sikh scripture is the Guru Granth Sahib and it is the only Guru/Guide/Teacher of the Sikhs. People from all faiths, and those who do not profess a faith, are always welcomed in Sikh Gurdwaras. Every Gurdwaras has a Langar Hall where free vegetarian food is served."
