Passport Program of Interfaith Action of Central Texas visits AZC
On June 1st AZC hosted 15+ participants of the Passport Program of Interfaith Action of Central Texas, whose mission and hope is that exposure and interaction amongst people of diverse faith traditions, cultures, and institutions will help build a deeper understanding and appreciation for all of our neighbors in communities across Austin.
From iACT: “Thank you to everybody who joined us this past Saturday for a quiet and reflective morning at the beautiful Austin Zen Center. We learned that Zen meditation is postural – sitting upright. The goal is to stop doing and instead experience life and humanity, being in full awareness. Thank you for the warm welcome from the sangas/members of Austin Zen Center and a special thank you to Rev. Mako Voelkel, Tim Kroll, Brice Smith and the teachings of Pat Yingst.”

About the North Austin Muslim Community Center:
The North Austin Muslim Community Center (NAMCC) was founded in approximately 1992. Prayers were offered initially at a rented building. The current property of three buildings located on five acres of land was purchased during 1996. One of the building was renovated toward the end of that year to be used as mosque. Other two buildings were renovated the following year to be used for Sunday School and guest quarter.
NAMCC is a registered non-profit organization and the property has been registered with NAIT (North American Islamic Trust) as belonging to the Islamic community of Austin (wafq). Muslim population of North Austin has seen tremendous growth by the grace of Allah (SWT) in recent years and it is expected to continue growing for the next several years.
It is iACT’s hope that exposure and interaction amongst people of diverse faith traditions, cultures, and institutions will help us build a deeper understanding and appreciation for all our neighbors in communities across Austin.
