Homecoming

is envisioned as a broad gathering of spiritual seekers, a new kind of hour-long hybrid event on Zoom — combining an initial conversation on that day's theme, followed by quiet communion in worship and small-group breakouts.

Everyone is welcome!

The opening conversations feature a variety of dynamic guests from different backgrounds, exchanging views on each week’s theme. The quiet worship allows us to commune with the Spirit within. And the breakouts give everyone an opportunity to share their stories, as we celebrate the many paths we walk along the unfolding spiritual journey.


When do we gather for Homecoming?

Living Our Spiritual Unity

Means

Honoring Our Religious Diversity


With special guests Candace Kant - Pagan Traditions

& Keith Thomas - The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints


Join host Marvin Gawryn in a conversation with his longtime friends and colleagues, Candace Kant and Keith Thomas, who serve with him on the Board of the Interfaith Council of Southern NevadaAlthough rooted in very different religious traditions, they and their twenty colleagues on the Board have increasingly experienced an underlying spiritual unity over the the years that is deeply satisfying … despite their religious diversity!

In this Homecoming gathering, Marvin and his guests will try to unpack the nature of that deeper spiritual unity — where it comes from, and how they have fostered it. And how it has allowed them to truly honor (and even celebrate) the different paths they walk in their unique faith traditions.




Some of the central spiritual themes we will explore:


How do we understand Spirit, the Highest Reality?

Whether Principle, Presence, or Person, how do we engage with the Source of everything around us -- that which is most real and important in our lives? How can we develop a sustaining connection or relationship with that Highest Reality … every day, even in every moment?



How do we connect with the Spirit within us?

How do our contemplative practices — meditation, prayer, worship — help us to connect with that Highest Presence in the deepest place inside of us? How can we, coming from our different traditions, help each other discover and develop this experience of intimacy with “God”, however we understand her/him/it? 




How do we transform our relationships?

How can we allow the Divine to inspire our relationships, and work through us to change the world? How can we tap into spiritual energies as we serve each other and higher causes … so that we can together address the global challenges we face?


How do we open ourselves to love and be loved?

How can we open to the Source of healing affection, be filled with it, and overflow with love to others all around us? How can we, in that love, experience the “peace that passes all understanding”?

And how can love help us to bridge our many differences, to live together peacefully as a diverse spiritual family in an increasingly global world?




How do we understand life and death?

Is death the endpoint, or simply a threshold we cross into whatever comes afterwards? How do our all-too-brief lives in this world fit in the larger cosmos, the vast realms that stretch out endlessly on a starry night?


How do we align with a higher purpose?

How do we find stability, order, guidance, and a powerful sense of purpose? How do we access inner sources of leading and direction in connection with Spirit?

How can we tap such higher guidance, in our efforts to respond to life’s challenges? How can we open to divine purpose, supercharging our motivations to serve?




How do we live faithfully in a changing world?

How can we better engage with all of these spiritual realities, bringing them more fully into our lives? If we believe in these possibilities, how can we depend on them more fully, focus on them more effectively, devote ourselves to them more completely — so they increasingly shape the way we live — flowing outward to uplift all of our relationships, and transform the world!


Homecoming hopes you will join us in a journey of discovery and mutual support, as we explore these kinds of questions and commune with the Divine Presence.   

With great love … seeking our pathways forward together,

The Homecoming Vision Team in partnership with UUI
