Rita Sabbagh sat down with Pastor Fahed Abuakel and asked him to tell her a little bit about his background and some of the early influences on his spiritual path.

This conversation was recorded at the ALIF Institute, a nonprofit located in Decatur, Georgia, whose mission is to “foster the understanding and appreciation of Arab cultures.”

This story was produced locally by Stephen Key and recorded in partnership with The Atlanta History Center, which hosts Atlanta’s StoryCorps booth. To book a time with a loved one or friend, go to WABE.org/storycorps.
