On May 3, women of The Sisterhood of Salaam/Shalom will discuss with the Ordinary Life Women (OLW) the practice of fasting in the Muslim and Jewish faiths.
“We will think about the values that fasting can offer our spiritual life — more than just ‘following the rules’ of faith,” said Barbara Buckner, who planned the program. “You will be enriched by those who find themselves closer to God during Ramadan and the holy days of the Jewish faith.”
OLW meets first Thursdays at noon, this month in Fondren Lounge. All women of all faiths are welcome. Bring a salad large enough for sharing.
