Abdullah Antepli, Duke's Muslim chaplain, will offer the opening prayer at the June 5 session of the N.C. Senate.
Antepli said his prayer will focus mostly on healing, redemption, compassion and unity.
"I am deeply humbled and honored to receive the invitation to be the guest Chaplain in the N.C. Senate," he said. "I hope many more similar symbolic but very meaningful events will take place to foster our society's commitment to diversity, pluralism and inclusivity."
