Fast. Pray. Love. A Countywide Day of Fasting and Good Works to Honor Ramadan
Sunday, June 11 – Dawn Through Sunset (Or However Much You Can Manage)
Culminating in a Festive Dinner Meetup at 8:45PM at King Falafel in Sebastopol
The month of Ramadan is devoted to fasting, prayer and acts of love and kindness. This year, the Of One Soul initiative of the Interfaith Council of Sonoma County is sponsoring a countywide day of fasting, contemplation and good works, capped by a festive meal (self-pay) at King Falafel, 100 Brown Street in Sebastopol. You are invited to observe this fast-day in solidarity with our Muslim neighbors, and to dip into a transformative spiritual practice.
Fasting during Ramadan is one of the Five Pillars of Islam. It is meant to bring us to an awareness of our spiritual selves. This is complemented by prayer or contemplation and engaging in good deeds. Get more details –– and good deed opportunities –– by visiting the Facebook event. On the day, you can share your reflections in real time there or by posting or tweeting using hashtag #fastpraylove.
Watch for Fast-Pray-Love updates on the event page and by email to explore aspects of Ramadan and of the role of fasting across spiritual traditions.
