Sangat Society of Boston in Everett

Relations
Council of Greater Boston and the Massachusetts Council of Churches

*Thursday August 23, 6:00 pm*
*Trinity Church, 206 Clarendon St Boston*
Guru Ka Langar* meal to follow


*The langar, an integral part of Sikh religious practice, demonstrates a
commitment to sharing and equality, and is much more than just a meal.
Please
join us in the Undercroft beneath the Sanctuary to continue our time
together
as all are fed a traditional vegetarian Indian meal by the local Sikh
community.
In solidarity and support, join us to pray for those killed at Sikh temple
in Oak Creek, Wisconsin and peace among all people. Musicians from the four
Sikh Gurdwaras in Massachusetts will share shabads  (songs) from the Gurmat
Sangeet (Sikh Sacred Music) Tradition. All are welcome to listen and
learn about this religious community. Christian, Jewish and Muslim Leaders
will speak in support of religious liberty for all. All are invited to stay
for the Guru Ka Langar (meal) to follow.

In solidarity with the Sikh community, you are invited to cover your head
when entering the Sanctuary as you feel comfortable. If you would like to
participate, scarves will be provided at the entrance to the Sanctuary. In
several Eastern traditions, including Sikhism, it is customary to cover
one’s head while entering a holy space as a mark of respect.
