Rumi's Circle

a community of lovers

Spiritual Activism, London Sat 7th Jan

omid-safi-jan-7Join Rumi’s Circle and St. Ethelburga’s for an evening with Dr Omid Safi, to discuss Spiritual Activism: Love and Justice in our Times.

Faith communities find themselves under assault on multiple fronts: rise of racist groups in US and Europe, Muslim extremist groups such as ISIS, and a breakdown of many models of liberalism. What are some resources of love and justice that Islam offers in equipping us with a sense of spiritual activism in confronting these serious challenges?
