CAIR-FL: GIVING BACK IS REVEREND'S BIRTHDAY WISH
Peace, harmony and love were words used by the Rev. Ernest Chu to describe what he and guests experienced at the Ecumenical Candlelight Peace Service and dual celebration of his 60th birthday.
Chu, assistant minister at Religious Science Ft. Lauderdale, organized the event in an effort to give back to the community. . .
Altaf Ali, executive director of Council on American-Islamic Relations in Pembroke Pines, spoke to the gathering about achieving peace.
"The way I achieve peace is reflecting on the majesty of God's creation," said Ali, adding that he is deliberately not affiliated with one place of worship because his organization represents all Muslims. "I think it's commendable that a group came together to appeal for peace. It sets a good example for others to follow."
