Pacifica Institute volunteers in Seattle has shared Noah’s Pudding with Redmond United Methodist Church, Holy Trinity Lutheran Church, and Bellevue Newport Presbyterian Church members. Pacifica Institute Northwest Regional Director Tezcan Inanlar has talked about historical significance of Ashure, day of the Noah’s Ark landed on earth after the big flood. Volunteers of the Pacifica Institute and the members of the church communities had shared their heritage of Noah, the common Prophet of the three Abrahamic faiths among themselves.
Rev. Lara Bolger, Pastor of the Redmond United Methodist Church, has talked about the below 11 lessons that we should take from Noah’s Ark.
1. Don’t miss the boat.
2. Remember that we are all in the same boat.
3. Plan ahead! It wasn’t raining when Noah built the Ark.
4. Stay fit. When you’re 600 years old, someone may ask you to do something really big.
5. Don’t listen to critics; just get on with the job that needs to be done.
7. For safety’s sake, travel in pairs.
8. Speed isn’t always an advantage. The snails were on board with the cheetahs.
9. When you’re stressed, float a while.
10. Remember, the Ark was built by amateurs; the Titanic by professionals.
11. No matter the storm, when you are with God, there’s always a rainbow waiting.
Mr. Tony Rogers, from Bellevue Newport United Methodist Church has said: “These interfaith gatherings are so important to foster better relationships among the Abrahamic faith traditions, and we are thankful to Pacifica Institute to facilitate such an opportunity ”.
