Why does religious practice matter?
The Rothko Chapel – located at 3900 Yupon – is hosting a time of meditation, discussion and prayer led by Abbas Mahvash of the Baha’i Community of Houston to explore a few answers to that evocative question – especially in light of the devastation caused by Hurricane Harvey.
The event is slated for noon on Wednesday, Oct. 4 at the nonprofit, which is located at 3900 Yupon in Houston. The event is free and open to the public with a suggested contribution of $10.
The program will explore a Baha’i view on the purpose of religious practice, specifically the significance of prayer and meditation for the transformation of individuals and communities. There will also be music by special guest Luke Slott, a singer, songwriter and composer from Dublin, Ireland.
The meditation is also part of the Rothko Chapel’s plan to dedicate time each Wednesday through the end of October for healing after Harvey, and Mahvash will weave that into the time of meditation and reflection.
