On the Man With the Light in His Eyes: Seeker After Truth, Rashid, Rightly Guided

The man with the light in his eyes is Rashid, whom I have posted about before. Walter, Bonita, Tim, Deb (who took the picture), and I visited his home Thursday night. He shared with the friends more of his fascinating journey which has involved the study of many different faith traditions, including, more recently, the Nation of Islam. He is now studying the Baha'i Faith. We listened to his spiritual invocations in Hebrew and Arabic. Rashid has agreed to open his home for a devotional meeting on Thursdays at 5 pm. Rashid is an Arabic given name that means "rightly guided". -gw
