Group Prayer Friday
The concept of group prayer fascinates me. What do you think of group prayer? Is it possible for there to be some sort of universal definition of prayer that people can agree upon? For today’s prompt, we delve into one group’s idea of a universal prayer ? the concept of coexistence, which means that it is possible for Jews, Christians, and Muslims to get along. Your job is to answer the question: Do you support the mission of the Coexist Foundation?
Creative Idea Gal’s Thoughts
I’ve been thinking a lot about what it means to support a person or idea. With regards to the concept of coexistence, I prefer to say that “to support” means to understand it, agree with it, like it, and generally be on its side or on the same team. So, if you say you support the concept of coexistence, it is because your mindset is open to believe in it.
I admire any group that purports to bring together into some sort of common denominator or theory three totally viewpoints on loving God. It is difficult when the media slams one religion over another, turning the act of loving God into a political debate. My admiration of the Coexist Foundation is my own unique way of lending support.
For today’s prompt, I offer:
The website of Coexist Foundation.
