Synopsis: Although his achievements are monumental, Gandhi is still just a man. In fact, according to his own candid admission, he was a less than perfect man. Yet he overcame his extreme shyness, a violent temper, and many unformed fears to become a magnetic leader who even his opponents could not resist. This Sunday, Reverend Michael Moran will examine Gandhi's life and share the story of his transformation.
"A man is but the product of his thoughts. What he thinks, he becomes." -- Mahatma Gandhi
This group study process will use the book, Gandhi the Man, The Story of His Transformation by Eknath Easwaran to expand upon the principles which led to his personal evolution from lawyer to peace maker. This is a fantastic opportunity to build our understanding of this great teacher while strengthening our connection with each other. There are five groups to choose from. See locations and times on our website.
