Upcoming Programs

The Art of Personality | Thursdays in May | 7:00 PM | Fattah Family Room |
Attitude is a principal thing in life. Our happiness and unhappiness in life depends not so much on what happens to us, but primarily on our attitude toward what happens to us. Every person is like a garden that they cultivate and the art of personality is the flowering of that garden. Gratefulness in a person’s character is like the fragrance in the flower. 
Join us on Thursday nights in May for live-streams with Pir Zia from the publication of the new book The Art of Personality. Thursdays May 2, 9, 16 and 23rd at 7:00 in the Abode Family Room in Fattah, followed by discussion and refreshments.

 

Rumi’s Café | Fridays & Saturdays 8:00 am-5:30 pm | Sundays 8:00 am-12:00 pm & 2:00-5:00pm | Visit Rumi’s for coffee, tea, homemade treats, and more!
