Christian-Muslim Prayer Service @ Oratory of Philip Neri
Dec 16 @ 4:00 pm – 5:30 pm
Christian-Muslim Prayer Service @ Oratory of Philip Neri | Indianapolis | Indiana | United States

Christians and Muslims Seek Common Ground

Fr. Chris Wadelton will co-host the Second Annual Christian-Muslim Unity Prayer Service at the Oratory of Philip Neri on December 16th at 4:00 pm. The theme of the Service will, once again, revolve around the mutual love Christians and Muslims have for Jesus Christ. Joining Fr. Chris will be Imam Ahmed Al-Amine from Masjid Al-Fajr, the oldest mosque in Indianapolis, and Dr. Eyas Raddad, President of the Indianapolis Muslim Community Association.

Last years Service contained beautiful messages of fresh hope and joy. As can be imagined, many of the Christian members of the congregation were surprised to learn of the esteemed place that Jesus holds in the Qur’an and the entire Muslim faith. To highlight this profound reality, a Unified Reading of the Bible and the Qur’an was presented. Fr. Chris and Imam Ahmed alternated reading the nearly identical passages from the two Holy Books that describe the virgin birth of Jesus. Dr. Raddad then stunned many in the audience with the Islamic belief that Jesus will return and rule the world and that Muslims will then follow Jesus.

The Service specializes in doing things that have never before been done. As with the Unified Reading, this year a prayer has been written that will be offered for recitation by the entire congregation. Known as the Christian-Muslim Unity Prayer, it gives thanks to the God of Abraham for giving all of us Jesus Christ.

Everyone is welcome to the service which will be followed by a question and answer period.

Dec 19 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm
14th Annual Indianapolis Winter Solstice Celebration @ Unitarian Universalist Church of Indianapolis (UUI)  | Indianapolis | Indiana | United States

Experience the Magic of Winter Solstice

Indianapolis area congregations come together in an earth-affirming celebration of the return of the Light–the only one of its kind in central Indiana.

The 14th Indianapolis Winter Solstice Celebration will be held at the Unitarian Universalist Church of Indianapolis, on
Wednesday, December 19, 2018
Thursday, December 20, 2018
at 7:00 p.m.

The event is free, but seating is limited. Doors open at 6:30 p.m.

This family-friendly, non-denominational event celebrates the return of the sun, weaving stories and songs together for a night that ranges from meditative to raucous … all of it deeply powerful and joyous. It’s more than a performance, it’s more than a worship service. It’s a feast of sound and spirit.

While many are caught up in the hectic pace of the holiday season this time of year, Indianapolis area congregations and community members are preparing to honor the return of the Light on the longest night year.

The celebration is based on the Winter Solstice Singing Ritual by
Julie Forrest Middleton and Stasa Morgan Appel. This year, the Solstice Choir is conducted by Pam Blevins Hinkle, former conductor of the Indianapolis Women’s Chorus, director of the Spirit & Place Festival, and co-leader of Song Squad. Lē Weaver provides original music, with sanctuary and altar design by local artists Stephanie Lewis Robertson, Kate Oberreich, and others.

If you’ve never attended, let us tell you a little about the event. Setting the mood is …
• the fantastic space in the sanctuary of the Unitarian Universalist Church of Indianapolis
• twinkle lights and candle light
• instruments ranging from djembe (African drum) to cello and synthesizer
• a celebration choir, conducted by Pam Blevins Hinkle
• original music by Le Weaver
• spectacular visuals by Stephanie Lewis Robertson and Kate Oberreich
• based on a beautiful ritual published by Emerald Earth Publishing

Oh, and we can’t forget the fun feast afterwards. Everyone pitches in for the feast, bringing delicious finger food to share while connecting with other attendees.

The Indy Winter Solstice Celebration is a collaboration among Central Indiana Unitarian Universalists—All Souls Unitarian Church, Heartland Unitarian Universalist Church, Oaklandon Unitarian Universalist Church, Sacred Path Unitarian Universalist Church, Unitarian Universalist Church of Indianapolis, and Unitarian Universalist Community Church of Hendricks County—along with CircleWebWorks, and Zemlin Photo.
