Ordination Pictures

L-R Rev. Dr. Qiyamah A. Rahman, Kaleema Haidera Nur (my younger daughter) and Libra Malika Finley (my oldest daughter and child).

We were small in number but big in spirit!

It was a day for lots of hugs!

The Choir of the UU Church of Charlotte sang like angels and offered a range of music including: Wade in the Water, Every Time I Feel the Spirit, and the choral postlude was Siyahamba, a South African freedom song that they sang in honor of my plans to begin my ministerial career in South Africa. Jennifer McLeod, soloist (first row far right) sang I Believe I Can Fly and made me cry.

Well, my pictures have arrived and I have relived my ordination all over again. Here are a few pictures that captured this wonderful day and event that I wanted to share with everyone!
