Join a huge January-February Spiritual Read about justice and environmental concerns of our time! 

Beginning weekly in early January, many small groups and individuals across our region will read, reflect and discuss Finding Peace through Spiritual Practice by the Interfaith Amigos.   

The Pacific Northwest acclaimed Interfaith Amigos will appear Sunday, February 12, 2017, 2-3:30 PM at Port Townsend High School Auditorium. The event is free to the public.

The authors – a Jewish rabbi, a Christian pastor and an Islamic Imam – boldly examine issues of violence, environmental degradation and economic inequality to:

  • Transcend polarization to foster unity over divides,
  • Debunk faith misunderstandings to cultivate understanding, respect and  relationships, and
  • Offer spiritual practices for our ‘inner worlds’ to better sustain efforts in our ‘outer worlds.’

The Ten-Week Spiritual Read is not a ‘feel good’ book club.  Rather this widespread shared experience will kindle authentic connection and meaningful collaboration toward activism. If you cannot attend all ten weeks, come to as many meetings as you can.

An easy-to-use Discussion Guide encourages lively, engaging and provocative conversations in group settings whether a coffee house, kitchen table, church or easy chair. 

To Join the Spiritual Read is as easy as 1-2-3:

  1. Select a Participating Group, form your own, or participate individually,

  2. Buy the Book, and

  3. Download the Discussion Guide.

Check out the many spiritual groups, neighborhoods, libraries and other groups taking part!

The Spiritual Read will close with a participative Celebration of Our Journey on Sunday, March 5, 2-4 PM at Unity Spiritual Enrichment Center across from Blue Heron School. The Poetic Justice Theatre Ensemble will dramatize personal responses to justice and environmental actions raised in the book. Interfaith minister Simon de Voil will provide music.   All participants are welcome!
