We often want to run from our imperfections, instead of accepting them for what they are—incarnations of the Divine.
These are some of my notes and reflections on Fr. Rohr's opening address at the conference a couple weeks ago.
Jesus is, of course, the center of Christianity, including Mormonism. In Mormonism, he is prominently identified in the name of the largest denomination of which I was a member, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. Everything revolves around Jesus.
In Sufism, which is the mystical approach to God within Islam, an "inward dimension of Islam," there are many teachings about the path of sacrificing and transcending the "self."
An addition to the BHT, about the insufficiency of outward commandments, laws and rules.
