WHAT: Interfaith Prayer Circle to Support the Spirit of #Occupy Seattle. Interfaith Leaders will gather to Support #OccupySeattle and #OccupyWallStreet.

This is an INTERFAITH event; prayers and inspiration of every religion and tradition are welcome.
WHEN: Friday, October 14, 2011, 3PM
WHERE: Westlake Park
BACKGROUND: We are religious, spiritual and people of good-will with a collective commitment to work together and give voice to the disempowered. As Faith Leaders, we are compelled to walk in the path of Jesus, Muhammad, Moses, Buddha, Rama, Krishna, and many others known and unknown to seek justice for all humanity and the planet. As people of spirit we believe in the power of people uniting from different backgrounds for a common goal.
