Study peace on Mondays
COEUR d’ALENE — Unity Spiritual Center of North Idaho is hosting a study course focused on interfaith dialogue and healing.
The course is the creation of the Association for Global New Thought (AGNT). It is presented as part of the AGNT’s "Season of Nonviolence," which honors the lives and legacies of the Mahatma Gandhi and Rev. Martin Luther King Jr.
The course draws upon edited recordings of conversations with 18 notable religious and spiritual teachers including Father Thomas Keating, Rabbi Deborah Bronstein, Dr. Nahid Angha, author K.L. Seshagiri Rao, Rev. Marcus Braybrooke, Friar Gonzalo Bernabe Ituarte Verduzco and Rev. Michael Beckwith.
These rare conversations are facilitated by Jim Kenney, former global director of the Parliament of the World’s Religions and an expert in world religion and culture. Kenney is the current director of the International Committee for the Peace Council and the International Interreligious Project for the 21st Century.
Each week, participants will listen to select recordings of conversations with noted religious leaders and experts who will expand upon topics of global importance.
The AGNT is committed to global healing through personal transformation, community building, compassionate activism and interfaith, intercultural and interdisciplinary understanding.
The course is designed for weekly individual self-study followed by a local group dialogue. The content and topics of this series are relevant to every world religious tradition and engage the audience on a wide variety of issues pertinent to the evolution of society. The topics include restorative justice; service, human rights and social justice; forgiveness in the Middle East and many more.
The study group will meet Mondays from 6:30-8:30 p.m. through March 28.
Meetings take place at Unity Center of North Idaho, 4465 N. 15th St. in Coeur d’Alene.
