On January 15, 2012 the Interfaith Center hosted “Let’s Pray,” an interfaith prayer retreat featuring Rabbi Levy of Temple B’Nai Israel, Sophia Said of the Islamic Center of Little Rock, Anna Cox of the Ecumenical Buddhist Society and the Rev. Susan Sims Smith, Executive Director of the Interfaith Center.
Each led small workshops to teach people techniques in preparing to pray and engaging in silent, meditative prayer from their respective faith traditions. 89 people of different faiths attended.
“Let’s Pray” was repeated on January 25, 2014, and included 73 participants who had an opportunity to practice those processes as well as sit in silence in the beautiful House of Prayer.
