About the event

On the first and third Sundays each month beginning January 7, we will study texts: scripture, poetry, prayers, aphorisms, and teaching stories. These texts will be mined for meaning by the group and read in the context of the world's religions.

We will read, one chapter per session, The World's Wisdom: Sacred Texts of the World's Religions, by Philip Novak. Alongside Novak's book, for context, we will read the corresponding chapters in The World's Religions, by Huston Smith.

Using Socratic dialogue, we will unravel hidden meanings and new understandings. We will share personal insights and experiences. Always, our discussions will be respectful, opening our minds and hearts to each other and perennial truths at the heart of the world's spiritual traditions.

Month by month, we will travel ancient but ever new terrain, paths long forgotten or dimly remembered. Like archeologists, we will uncover new insights, inspiration for our personal journeys.

We will meet on Zoom at 7:00 pm the first and third Sunday of each month.  You will also be added to a Facebook Group to discuss topics between sessions.

This small group is presented in partnership with GTUx, a Community of Learners That Believes in a Better World, part of the Graduate Theological Union in Berkely, California.
