On behalf of Janis Claflin and Amanda Quraishi, Co-Chairs of this year’s A Night Under One Sky, Interfaith Action of Central Texas (iACT) cordially invites you to experience an evening like no other in Austin. Each year, for one beautiful evening, people from all faiths come together in the magnificent Umlauf Sculpture Garden for a night of dinner and dialogue in celebration of the relationships we have, and those we hope to build.
A Night Under One Sky has become a beloved tradition in our community. It celebrates the notion that there is common ground we can all walk in search of peace and respect in this world. The setting is magical. The food is delightful. The music is inspiring. The conversation is uplifting.
Please join us and support iACT’s vital service programs, serving our most vulnerable neighbors, through our 2012 fall fundraiser – A Night Under One Sky! This special event will be held on Tuesday, October 09, 2012, from 6:30 to 9:00pm.
This year A Night Under One Sky will feature a special guest: Rev. Dr. Wes Magruder, senior associate pastor at First Rowlett United Methodist Church in Rowlett, Texas. Rev. Magruder recently attracted international attention when he decided to join his friend, Imam Yaseen Shaikh of Plano, in observing the Ramadan fast. He wrote about the experience on his personal blog, offering insights into the practice of fasting and how his interaction with his Muslim friends deepened his Christian faith.
As he concluded his observance of Ramadan Rev. Magruder wrote, “I will always be hungry for the kind of friends I have made over the last month…” We look forward to hearing Rev. Magruder’s reflections and the opportunity of breaking bread with him.
