This Sunday

October 26   “Moses and the Shepherd: Rumi’s Views on the Essence and Diversity of Prayer”                                                 Dr. Amer Latif

In telling a captivating story of an encounter between the prophet Moses and a shepherd, Rumi explores the phenomenon of prayer from many perspectives.  Moses overhears the shepherd addressing God as if God were a little sheep and is quick to passionately criticize the shepherd’s speech and its shortcomings in doing justice to the greatness and transcendence of God.  This episode serves as the starting point for Rumi to lay out his views on the truth and efficacy of different forms of prayer and to point out what prayer looks like from God’s perspective.  Amer Latif, Marlboro College professor and Rumi scholar, returns to All Souls this Sunday to share his thoughts on this fascinating topic.
