In a remarkable interfaith gesture, distinguished Hindu statesman Rajan Zed addressed Church of God in Christ (COGIC) convocation in Reno (Nevada, USA) on June 23.

 

Speaking at the conclusion of the weeklong 4th Annual Holy Convocation of Northern Nevada 1st Ecclesiastical Jurisdiction of COGIC, Zed, who is President of Universal Society of Hinduism, stressed: We should all learn to live together with our seriously different traditions, not only in peace but in some sort of trust and mutual loyalty.

 

Rajan Zed further said: Dialogue can help us overcome the prejudices and caricatures passed down to us by previous generations. We should seek a unity that celebrates diversity.

 

Zed admired frequent benevolence of COGIC Charities by reaching out to assist humanity in times of need and through its various projects and COGIC's practice of Feet Washing, which he said displayed love and humility.

 

Rajan Zed thanked Bishop Luther James DuPree Junior for his efforts at bringing the community together, while Bishop DuPree thanked Zed for participation.

 

COGIC, a Christian organization in the Holiness-Pentecostal tradition, claims to be the largest Pentecostal denomination in USA with over six million members in the United States alone, besides congregations in nearly 60 countries around the world. Headquartered in Memphis (Tennessee, USA) with Charles E. Blake, Sr. as the Presiding Bishop, its Mission is "To seek and save that which is lost". Hinduism, oldest and third largest religion of the world, has about one billion adherents and moksh (liberation) is its ultimate goal.
