In order of presentation, the members are Emma Farrell, Magane Koshimura, Sarah Harmon, Chuck Ruth and Stephanie Kiesling. Minister of Faith Development Rev. Emily Gage offers introductory thoughts.

Beloved Conversations is an experiential curriculum that provides a space to re-form/fuse the brokenness of racism into new patterns of thought and behavior ushering in social and spiritual healing. New ways of being are learned through the actions of conversation and probing dialogue.

Jun 30, 2019

Sermon delivered by Andrew Harvey on June 30, 2019. Andrew Harvey has spent 40 years devoting himself to the Rumi Renaissance and to Rumi as the prophet of love of the new universal mysticism. And now, he focuses his passion on the other great universal mystical poet, Kabir the powerful poet of India, loved by Muslims, Hindus and Sikhs but whose vision of the One transcends all religions.

In this sermon, Mr. Harvey acts as translator and unifier for Ruminator and Kabir, inviting us to experience the extreme, stunning, mystical dialogue of the heart between these two universal masters. Rumi made us vulnerable to love and now Kabir kills us into the eternal life of truth in embodied Divine humanity. Andrew further presents these two perspectives as an urgent calling to us to take action in response to our immediate climate emergency.

Jun 23, 2019

Sermon delivered by Intern Minister Zsolt Elekes on June 23, 2019. In the month of beauty, we are trying to find the beauty in the world, which we can often find in nature. Here, Zsolt raises awareness that the beauty of nature - like the coral reefs, forests and islands - will no longer be observed by the next generations if we are not listening to the climate scientists and we are not hearing the words of awareness. Through his sermon, Zsolt presents two cases of environmental injustice from Transylvania, and he gives voice to his visions and dreams.

Sermon delivered by Intern Minister Zsolt Elekes on June 9, 2019. There is beauty everywhere, we just need to observe it.

He also provides his understanding of Pentecost.
