Want to do a deeper dive with our Lenten Preaching Series this year? On Sunday mornings from 9:00-9:45, Calvary clergy, the Ven. Mimsy Jones, and LPS coordinator Heidi Rupke will discuss articles and other writings by LPS speakers. Read along with them ahead of the discussion or just tune in for a lively conversation about everything from poetry to the planet, music to systemic injustice. Then catch the LPS speakers themselves the following Wednesday at noon and 6:30 p.m.
This week: Rabbi Rami Shapiro
As a rabbi drawn to Hasidism and Kabbalah, and a practitioner of Perennial Wisdom found at the mystic heart of all religions, Rabbi Rami Shapiro’s message is simple: Alles iz Gott: everything is a manifesting of God. He is inspired by anyone who dares to step outside the safety of sacred opinion to experience and perhaps utter Truth beyond “ism” and ideology. Love is a reaction to images we hold of others rather than to the others themselves. With this in mind, Shapiro prefers to meet others as they are rather than love them as he imagines them to be.
