At the National Prayer Service This Morning

January 22, 2013 § Leave a comment

Earlier today, I attended the National Prayer Service at the Washington National Cathedral. The Service is a traditional occurrence during each presidential inauguration and features leading religious figures from all major religious faiths. I was proud to represent Bahrain at this year’s event.

The National Cathedral is a beautiful building and represents America’s tradition of religious freedom and religious pluralism. It is Washington’s fourth tallest building and certainly one of its most stunning pieces of architecture. Construction began on the Cathedral in 1907 and was completed during the term of President George H. W. Bush in 1990.

In August 2011, the Cathedral was seriously damaged by the 5.8 magnitude earthquake that hit Washington. It was a particular pleasure to see how far they have come in repairing the damage.

I took some photos while I was there. Check them out below:
