Cosponsored by Neshama Interfaith Center and Ignatius House Jesuit Retreat Center.
In “All the Great Religions of the World” written for Redbook Magazine in 1964, Dr. King provides a poignant reminder that love lies at the heart of all major religions. Violence and conflict, then, are not a result of religious differences but of the fact that “too many people have been religious in their creeds but not enough in their deeds.” King believed that religion had the power to play a major role in establishing peace, but that it would only succeed with greater emphasis on following the inherent ethical teachings.
In celebration of Martin Luther King Jr. Day, women and men of all faiths and backgrounds are invited to join us at Ignatius House to unplug for the day and reflect on what Dr. King called “A New Definition of Greatness.”
Our guest speakers – Fr. Jeffery Ott, Rabbi Ellen Nemhauser and Mr. Kemal Korucu – will offer some thoughts on the legacy of Dr. King from the perspective of their own respective faith tradition, then lead us in dialogue first as a large group and then in more intimate smaller circles. You will have time for conversation with new friends and old, silence and contemplation, rest, a satisfying meal, and the beautiful Ignatius House grounds to wander around.
Cost: $35, includes the program, a continental breakfast and lunch.
Space is limited, so don’t delay!
