Forging a Faith of Justice and Joy
There’s one big difference between religion and faith. Religion is a set of beliefs we inherit and accept. It comes from outside ourselves. Faith comes from within us. It is our own creation, forged from our commitments and ultimate concerns. Creating a faith for ourselves is the very act that leads to a whole-hearted life of purpose. It aligns us with others and steeps us in Oneness at the same time.
Jan’s talk will shed light on how you can create a faith that comes from your core and proclaims the sacredness of all lives. Three takeaways:
- re-examine what you’ve inherited from religion and dismiss what insults your soul
- determine what you’re committed to and create a spirituality consistent with your commitments
- allow your inner mystic to surface and guide you to your prophetic work
Saturday Multimedia Event
Beyond Belief — Becoming the Mystics & Prophets We Are Called to Be
Healing the world begins with healing ourselves. As Ramana Maharshi reminds us: “The greatest service we can render the world is our own self-realization.” This means that we become the greatest light in the world when we master our own ordeals and connect our creative potential with our spiritual power. Becoming a prophetic person starts with a spiritual practice. It moves from silence to thought to word and action. When our words and actions are rooted in our spiritual commitments, we become a light in the world and a force for good. This time together is an entry point into our own deep wisdom. Using the tools of music, poetry, story-telling and imagery, we will explore the landscape of our own experience, mining it for insight and ideas about the work ahead.
