Spiritual Literacy: 
Recognizing the Sacred in Each Other and Everyday Life

Based on the Spiritual Alphabet developed by Frederic and Mary Brussat, this seven-week series will explore spiritual practices that cultivate our ability to see the sacred in our midst. Such practices are not the property of any particular religion; instead, they are the basis of a healthy spiritual life for people of all religions, those of no religion, and those who consider themselves "spiritual but not religious." This series is open to everyone.

Cultivating an Interfaith Mindset in Rural Arkansas



Sponsored by GAIN (Greater Arkansas Interfaith Network)
Facilitated by Dr. Jay McDaniel and the Rev. Teri Daily
 
When:   Saturday, March 3, from 9 am until noon
Where:   The Religion and Philosophy Commons at  Hendrix College
Who:  Anyone Wishing to Nurture Interfaith Understanding
 
While most interfaith resources are concentrated in urban  areas, the need to cultivate hospitality toward other religions  exists in rural areas as well. During this workshop, we will
explore the characteristics of "an interfaith mindset," learn about  existing interfaith initiatives in rural Arkansas, and brainstorm  new ways to cultivate interfaith understanding in areas where
religious diversity is not readily apparent. All are welcome.
 
There is NO FEE for this workshop, but we ask that you let us know  you are coming by emailing Teri at revteridaily@gmail.com.

ICR Culture Center

On Saturday, March 3 at 2 o'clock, at the ICR Culture Center, please join us for a cup of tea, conversation, friendship, and joyful dancing.
 
We will be learning how to do dabka, a traditional Middle Eastern dance. We will engage the children of the community in friendship, singing, dancing, and good deeds. The children will prepare their very own envelopes to mail their Letters of Hope to Syria, weigh it for postage, affix the stamp, and together we will take their letters to the mailbox. Then we will practice our dabka dancing and begin to learn our Arabic song. Moms will talk about traditional costumes for the kids for the dabka dancing and Arabic singing performance that will be held in May.
 
We invite all women and children of the Russellville community to join us. See you then!
