Planning for Martin Luther King Anniversary Remembrance and Neighborhood Outreach Discussion!
Some representatives of the Dearborn Interfaith Network met at IHW to discuss the details of annual MLK event.
In the beginning of this meeting imam Elahi shared his experience of recent interfaith successful conference at Divine Child Church and emphasized on the importance of neighborhood communication. Love your neighbors and pray for your neighbors are of the most fundamental messages both in Christianity and Islam.
Imam asked the network to look at association and socialization with our neighbors both in Dearborn area and sister cities as a priority in 2019. This way the clergy community both in the mosques and churches call their congregations to open their hearts and homes to their neighbors and remove the walls of separation, ignorance, hate, racism and isolation.
During this meeting the brutal and barbaric slaughtering of the Saudi citizen and American resident late Jamal Khashoggy by the murderers of the Saudi monarchy was condemned.
The network concluded that standing for justice, human rights and dignity is a moral and religious obligation and this is why we honor Martin Luther King as a human hero who fought for freedom, justice and integrity.
In its community dinner on November 9th at 6 pm, IHW is providing some complimentary seats for interfaith activists. Please call IHW to save your seats. Some local and national leaders will be honored during this dinner.
