Prayers for Sikh Temple

Sunshine Cathedral, a progressive Metropolitan Community Church, extends warm wishes to the Sikh Temple of Wisconsin for healing in the aftermath of the attack on its worshipers yesterday, August 5th.

Sikhism is one the six largest religions in the world (along with Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, Buddhism, and Judaism), but more important than its size is the fact that it is made up of members of the human family seeking enlightenment, wisdom, and spiritual growth who have consistently contributed to the pursuit of wisdom, peace, and joy in the world.

We at Sunshine Cathedral affirm those who have inherited or chosen the Sikh pathway to spiritual fulfillment and we denounce the unprovoked violence that that Temple in Wisconsin has suffered. Furthermore, we pray for healing for those who have been wounded and comfort for those who have suffered loss.

May God bless the members and friends of the Sikh Temple of Wisconsin who are in our hearts at this time.

Peace and blessings,

Rev. Dr. Durrell Watkins
Senior Minister
Sunshine Cathedral
Fort Lauderdale, FL
