Attend an interfaith celebration of springtime & “Nowruz” (the Iranian New Year) at the Sandy Spring Museum. This program will provide food for the body, mind & spirit! We’ll start with some ethnic & cultural presentations accompanied by a delicious “potluck” feast. (Please bring foods to share that represents your culture, vegetarian preferred). We’ll then share in an interfaith panel with speakers from the Baha’i, Coptic Christian, Persian/Iranian Sufi, & Zoroastrian faiths on the theme of “Spiritual Renewal and Springtime.”

No Nowruz would be complete without an offering of the ecstatic Sufi poetry of Jalaluddin Rumi; we’ll be reading in both Farsi and English. Our afternoon will conclude with an Interfaith Peace Circle for participants to offer their prayers and thoughts for peace and renewal.

Please preregister so we know how many people to expect and please sign up to bring something to share at the potluck. Doors open at 2:45 pm.
