In a remarkable interfaith gesture, Luther James DuPree Junior, Bishop of Rehoboth Holy Temple (Church of God in Christ), presented a testimonial to distinguished Hindu statesman Rajan Zed.
This testimonial; handed to Zed by Bishop DuPree in a public ceremony held in the briefing room of Reno Police Headquarters; was titled as “Rajan Zed, Global Religious Statesman”.
Speaking on the occasion, Bishop DuPree said: I would like to commend Rajan for all the good things that he has done in this community.
Global religious statesman Rajan Zed has taken-up interfaith, religion, European Roma (Gypsies), and other causes all over the world. He has read opening prayers in the United States Senate and US House-of-Representatives in Washington DC; various State Senates, State Houses-of-Representatives, County Commissions, City Councils all-over USA; covering 292 legislative bodies in 43 states. He was invited by the President of the European Parliament in Brussels (Belgium) for a one-on-one meeting to promote interfaith dialogue.
Zed, who is President of Universal Society of Hinduism, had been panelist for “On Faith”, a prestigious interactive conversation on religion produced by The Washington Post; and has been producing weekly interfaith panel “Faith Forum” in a Gannett daily for over 11 years.
Bishop DuPree, described as a powerhouse preacher, has been reportedly overseeing five Churches of God in Christ in Northern Nevada.
