A group of interfaith met in Imam Elahi's house for dinner and discussion about strengthening families and marriage in hope of eliminating crises in families and domestic violence. Imam Elahi briefed the guests about the tragic death of Sanaz Nezami who allegedly was killed by her husband.
He pointed out to the epidemic of family problems, which is threatening every community regardless of their religious or cultural backgrounds.
Rev. David Kasbow and Dr. Michael Ross ran the meeting and suggested a conference on this subject to take place in April. Other members who participated in this brainstorming meeting included- Rosemarie Denton, Gary Nixon, Rabbi Waldman, Janice Daniels, Pastor Geri Simmons, Warren Palmer, Pastor Faith, Emmanuel Kouassi, Yvonne Moore, Denny Lukasik, Jim Thienel and Karen Jackson.
They concluded that for America to overcome the destruction of families and marriage in order to return to the morals of faith, it must remember God and stand against what is wrong, even if it's unpopular.
Continuing to plan the conference, the group will meet again next week with more leaders to lay the foundation of this event. The idea is to reflect on the vision of family, solutions for the current crisis and will address the role of clergy and community leaders towards providing family guidance.
