Muslim Prayer Service at National Cathedral Washington DC – Friday November 14

The monotheistic religionists like the Episcopalians are way ahead of the curve in sharing church property with other faiths. It is a diverse country last I heard.

Planners had said they hoped Friday’s service at the historic cathedral would foster more understanding and acceptance between Christians and Muslims around the world.

The prominent Episcopal cathedral often hosts national events, such as presidential funerals, and has hosted Muslims at various interfaith services in the past. But planners say this is the first time the cathedral has invited Muslims to lead their own prayers there, which they call a “powerful symbolic gesture”.

As the service continued, Rizwan Jacka of Islamic Society of North America called the cathedral a house of prayer for all people.
