This year’s theme is “Dear God, it’s me…” Our heart seeks unity and closeness with the One Lord knowing that only when our hearts are connected to Allah, will we find peace. This worship of our Creator is a beautiful love letter we write only to Him – all our actions, our thoughts, and our hopes in this life directed towards our Beloved, our Lord. Allow this year’s conference to inspire you to grasp that pen and begin, “Dear God, it’s me…”
