This Sunday, we deeply engage with the ideas of welcome, spirituality, faith, and religion. Our exploration is multilayered. First, what do we gain when we welcome faith and spirituality into our own lives? Once we have found our own spiritual grounding, I invite us to explore, through the musings of Jewish and Buddhist scholars, what it is that is universal in the faith traditions of the world. How can this intimate understanding lead us to welcome those of all religions?
