Love Thy Neighbor: Meeting at the Well


LoveThyNeighbor2015

“Love Thy Neighbor: Meeting at the Well,” featuring musical performances, speakers from several of the world’s religions and the Interfaith Food Festival, will be held at St. Mark’s Episcopal Church, 1000 N. Mississippi Avenue in Little Rock, on Thursday, September 10, 2015 beginning at 6 p.m.

The intergenerational service will last about an hour with speakers, time for prayer and silence, musical performances from local artists and an interfaith chorus.

The second Interfaith Food Festival will follow the service, offering a wide variety of vegetarian dishes prepared by members of the interfaith community, and will include Kosher and Halal foods.

The event is free and open to the public. While no childcare will be provided, children are welcome at this event.

The Interfaith Center and its sister organization, The Arkansas House of Prayer, both based in Little Rock, are honored to hold this gathering, now in its fourth year. The event began as a peace-oriented service on the grounds of the House of Prayer, marking the 10th anniversary of September 11, 2011 as an opportunity to draw people together who are dedicated to peace in our community and the world.

The Interfaith Center is part of the Institute for Theological Studies at St. Margaret’s, and its mission is to reduce the hatred and fear among the world religions.

Located in West Little Rock on the campus of St. Margaret’s Episcopal Church, Arkansas House of Prayer is an interfaith haven, set apart in nature, dedicated to contemplative prayer, meditation, and quiet, where all are welcome (arkansashouseofprayer.org).
