Interfaith event focuses on tolerance

April 2, 2014

Many meals open with one prayer. The Ninth Annual Dialogue and Friendship Dinner began with three.

First came Mississippi State University associate psychology professor Carolyn Adams-Price with a Jewish prayer, recited in Hebrew. Second came Rev. Lynn Phillips-Gaines from the Episcopal Church of the Resurrection with a Christian prayer. And last came MSU aerospace engineering professor Rani Sullivan with a Muslim prayer, which she opened with a word she said many might know from Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” — “Bismillah.”
