I’m excited to announce that I will be participating in a very special interfaith contemplative event in Atlanta, April 8-10!
Five Faiths Explore the Sacred Path
An Interfaith Contemplative Gathering
April 8-10, 2011
First Christian Church of Atlanta’s Annual Spirituality Conference
4532 LaVista Road
Tucker, GA 30084
This conference will offer insights from five of the world’s major religions regarding the sacred path to God. Contemplation is an essential component of Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, and Judaism. Leaders from these five faith communities in Atlanta will share their insights and experiences that have occurred on their contemplative journeys.
In this conference you will hear presentations, singing, and storytelling. You will participate in small groups, periods of silence, sharing meals, and worship. The presenters are committed practitioners of their respective faith traditions; most are laypeople. The conference provides the opportunity to explore together our commonalities and differences while building interfaith relationships in the larger community we all share.
