March Universal Worship

Payne Memorial Amec Church, 209 S King Rd, Holland, Ohio 43528


The Buddhist Temple of Toledo will present music on the theme of "Purpose of Life" at this month's Universal Worship Service.

The Universal Worship Service was created in 1921 by the Indian mystic, musician, and Sufi teacher who brought Universal Sufism to the west. Inayat Khan created this prayer service to invoke the One Being through the world's major faith traditions.

The service is traditionally led by an ordained Cherag or Cherags, who light[s] a candle to each of the traditions included. The Cherag then lights the Spirit of Guidance candle, which symbolically represents “all those who, whether known or unknown to the world, have held aloft the light of Truth amidst the darkness of human ignorance”. Readings and music from the traditions presented follow.

This service is free and all are welcome to attend.
