Last week, the Sikh Temple of Utah (in Salt Lake City) and the Salt Lake Interfaith Roundtable hosted an interfaith evening of kirtan and prayer. Today, I was happy to hear from Colleen M. Scott, one of the organizers, who described the evening and shared photos of the event:

Dear Mr. Singh,

Thank you for featuring the March 6 Utah Sikh Temple service on your website.

The Salt Lake Sikh community held the evening service specially for Interfaith Month and the response was wonderful. A very diverse group of members from Christian, Jewish, and other faith communities attended, including a group of 14 or so young ladies from a local church.

Temple President and Roundtable board member J.B. Singh welcomed attendees and introduced Roundtable Board Chair Alan S. Bachman, and Josie Stone, Interfaith Month Committee Chair. They each spoke from the heart on how very important it is for all of us to work at increasing understanding among persons of all faith traditions and cultures.

I invite you to visit the Roundtable’s Facebook page where we have posted a Sikh Temple photo album.

Warmly,
Colleen M. Scott
Roundtable Media and Education Chair

What a great initiative in Salt Lake City to build interfaith bridges in their community!

    Thanks for the picture however, in the picture you can also see the hypocrisy practiced by us Sikhs- who claim to believe in equality, but make men and women sit separately.
