Join us this Monday for the welcome return of Bro. Tom!
Rev. Tom Cummiskey is an ordained Interfaith Minister. Tom is active in the Interspiritual movement, serving as Director of Communications for OUnI, the Order of Universal Interfaith.
Tom will share with us what Interspirituality is from the perspective of building community at the grassroots level. From as simple as having a book-group to having a weekly service to doing a live weekly broadcast, to becoming an eco-spiritual chaplain. These are all ways of being in the world within the framework of Interspirituality.
Today we conclude our series on the RHIMES lineage of Interspirituality with a look at the "S" - Spirituality! There is a lot of talk about spirituality these days, and a lot of folks within institutional Christianity dismissing it out of hand. That reflects a profound misunderstanding of both spirituality and religion. What are the differences, similarities, and areas of overlay? We will look at that question and more today on Interspiritual Insights!
Today we continue our series on the RHIMES lineage of Interspirituality as we look at the meaning of the "H" - heart centered spirituality. Join us!
We often hear traditionalists from every religious tradition accuse reformers of "diluting the teachings." Even Buddhists talk about the mindfulness movement as "diluting the teachings of the Buddha" because mindfulness is but one component of the Noble Eightfold Path while at the same time acknowledging that as Buddhism has moved from culture to culture throughout history is has adapted to its new environment. Indian Buddhism, for example, is very different from Tibetan Buddhism but nobody accuses Tidbetan Buddhism (today, anyway) of having diluted Buddhist teachings. Conservative Christians argue that those of us who teach a contemporary sexual ethic of "diluting the teachings" as well, despite the fact that Jesus himself taught a progressive sexual ethic for his day.
As Interspirituality grows as a movement we hear people from every side accuse us of "diluting the teachings," but what are they really saying and what is it they fear? In the case of Buddhism, it certainly doesn't have a corner on contemplative practice because every major religious tradition has a contemplative component. Why is a secular contemplative practice threatening? Can any tradition grow stagnant and survive over time?
We'll exaimine these issues and more today on Interspiritual Insights!
Today on Interspiritual Insights we begin a series explorinmg the RHIMES lineage of interspiritual practice. This week we look at "R" - radical inclusion. There's more involved than you might think! Join us for what's sure to be an enlightening conversation!
Welcome to the inaugeral episode of Interspiritual Insights! Interspirituality, a term coined by the late Brother Wayne Teasdale, seeks to draw from all of the great spiritual traditions and create a space large enough for everyone can be comfortable. As has been pointed out in the recent book The Coming Interspiritual Age, Spirituality says there is one God, religion says there are many Gods (and then tries to sell you their version.)
Interspiritual Insights explores the possibility of a spirituality of understanding the other - one that doesn't mean abandoning whatever truths we hold, but rather we hold our truths while remaining open to the truths of the other. It means a respect for all living beings and a recognition that everything and everybody is inseperably interconnected. Join our host, Bidhop Craig Bergland, for an exciting weekly discussion sure to enrich your journey!
