I was delighted to have been invited to be part of a panel at The Spiritual Summit for Social Change on Saturday the 13th of September at the Second Presbyterian Church in NYC. The title of the panel was “Seeking to Move Beyond the Differences Between the World’s Religions,” and in it we discussed why we have religions, the differences between religion and spirituality, do we really still need religion and many other questions around religion and. spirituality.
There were about 17 groups and panels throughout the day and there must have been upward of 300-400 people participating .
This Summit was created by Kurt Johnson, author of THE COMING INTERSPIRITUAL AGE, and was connected to the United Religious Initiative (URI) and the CSVGC – The Committee on Spiritual Values and Global Concerns at the United Nations, New York.
Some of the luminaries who were there included, and shown here, were Kurt Johnson, JJ and Desiree Hurtak, Victoria and Ron Friedman, Jodi Serota, Alan Steinfeld, Mitchell Rabin, Rev. Deborah Moldow, Monica Willard and Audrey Kitagawa , plus many more.
What a great day, with wonderful breakout sessions, music, sacred altar for the earth and more.
