In the current study of “religion,” two different methods have developed that are often in tension with each other. The first is the Post-Colonial Method (PCM) with scholars like Talal Asad, Edward Said, Timothy Fitzgerald, and Gayatri Spivak, and the second is the Sociological Method (SM) with scholars like Steve Bruce, Phil Zuckerman, and Barry A. Kosmin. Each of these methods has their own histories, assumptions, and trajectories for the…Continue

In classical Greek art, Kairos is portrayed in a manner similar to Hermes (the Roman Mercury). He is handsome, young, perpetually in motion, swift, constantly running; he has wings on his feet and on his back, he continually escapes the efforts of those who try to stop him. Cipriani
Kairos is the “fullness of time,” God’s time zone. Kairos time conveys notions of unboundedness, of fluidity, of God’s purposes intersecting and overruling this finite world of chronological…Continue

If the human beings are the creation of the GOD described in the holy books then GODs should know the human mentalities. But it doesn’t seem like that from the holy books. I hope we will discuss the things in…

I remember the afternoon when Chris Stedman and I hopped on a call with Matt Black and Alisa Roadcup, who were then working for the Parliament of the World’s Religions. I was standing in Central Park in New York City, right after leaving work as a Chaplain Intern at Mount Sinai Hospital.
It had been a sunny day. But throughout a largely sunny landscape, raindrops began to…Continue

Leveling the playing field for social cohesion, these advances propel Interfaith to a global tidal wave now crossing the borders of more than half of the world’s nations.

Every young person should have the opportunity to learn, but that’s not currently the reality for over 57 million out-of-school children around the world.

The case’s plaintiff was the county where I was born and raised – Shelby County Alabama. The county that has…Continue
