Multifaith prayer service planned Dec. 20 in Reno

In view of growing violence nationally and globally, diverse Northern Nevada faith groups are joining hands to pray together.

Religious statesman Rajan Zed, who is coordinating a service hosted by South Reno United Methodist Church, says that despite different religious traditions, faiths need to come together in prayer, dialogue, and community to bring light and hope to the spreading darkness, many times affecting innocent people.

The prayerful gathering of diverse faith communities, remembering and recognizing the victims and their suffering, will offer prayers for healing. Christian, Muslim, Hindu, Buddhist, Jewish, Native American, Baha’i, etc., prayers will be read, besides some music. Guests will be invited to sign a banner with a pledge for peace and unity.

Public is invited to attend “Multi-faith Prayer Vigil for Peace & Unity,” which will be held at South Reno United Methodist Church, 200 DeSpain Lane, Reno 89511; at noon Sunday, Dec. 20.
