Religion, Spirituality and Social Responsibility

With the official closing of the Evangelical Kirchentag
in Cologne today, I am posting some thoughts and photos
I took during a day visit to some programme and fora:

"Coming together as friends in religious contexts requires
respect for forms of worship different than our own.
These differences keep heart and mind open.
They are soul food.
If we are to find a path of our own, it helps to
know and appreciate the paths of others.
To realize that the household of God is indeed big
enough for all gives everyone room to live and grow.
The idea that there is only one right way home, one path
for all, creates judgment and separation.
Women's spirituality is about connectedness."
Joan Borysenko
