Muslim & Christian Congregations in Arlington to Observe Day for Peace

A Day for World Peace will be observed on Sunday, Sept. 8, at an interfaith service involving two congregations – one Muslim, the other Christian. The 10 a.m. service will take place at Rock Spring Congregational United Church of Christ in Arlington, which will be joined by the Dar Al-Hijrah Islamic Center of Falls Church. The theme for the day will be “Two Faiths, One Creation.” All are invited to attend.

This event builds on the interfaith service observed on the 10th anniversary of 9/11 in September 2011 by the congregations of Dar Al-Hijrah and Rock Spring, followed by another in 2012. The service will involve elements from each faith and, after a social hour, many congregants will join the 9/11 Unity Walk in DC.
