Children of Abraham

The terrorist attacks on September 11, 2001 were an attempt to rip apart the children of Abraham. Al Qaeda's goal was to create a war, not between the United States and Al Qaeda, but between Christians and Muslims. One way that those of us who oppose Al Qaeda's and its mission can prevent this from happening is to foster understanding. This September 11, 2010 some a little group of Abraham's children are getting together to hear sacred stories from each of the Abrahamic faiths. I've been to these story telling event before; they are quite compelling, even without such a powerful goal. I hope you can come.

Details: A Storytelling Concert will be held on September 11th at 7pm at the Islamic Cultural Center of Tempe, 131 E 6th St, Tempe. This will be a celebration of diversity and an act of solidarity. Tempe Imams, Pastors and Rabbis will tell Beloved Stories from sacred scripture—Qur´an, Torah, and Bible. Make plans now to honor your September 11th Patriot Day with this special interfaith event.

From the Veteran's Way Metro stop it is one block south on College and one block west on 6th.
