In a remarkable interfaith gesture, distinguished Hindu statesman Rajan Zed was invited and welcomed by Reno First Congregational Church (RFCC) in Nevada (USA) over its Christmas celebrations on December 24 night.

This Christmas Eve Service, which started around 10 pm, included carols and candlelighting. Zed, who is President of Universal Society of Hinduism, expressed warmest greetings to the congregants on the Christmas; wishing that it brought joy, happiness, blessings and cheer to all.

Rajan Zed stresses that all religions should work together for a just and peaceful world. Dialogue would bring us mutual enrichment, he adds.

RFCC, whose history goes back to 1870, is a congregation of United Church of Christ, headquartered at Cleveland (Ohio, USA) with Reverend Geoffrey A. Black as President. Rich Smith is the RFCC Pastor.

Christianity is the largest religion of the world, while Hinduism with about one billion adherents, is the oldest and third largest religion. Christmas, which commemorates Christ's nativity, is the most widely celebrated religious festival of the world, and falls on December 25.
