Munira Elizabeth Reed Comes to UUCC
All are welcome to attend any or all of these spirit–enriching events presented by Munira Elizabeth Reed, PhD. Ordained as a Sufi Cherag, and also as a United Methodist minister, she is an experienced spiritual teacher. Inspired by Neil Douglas-Klotz’s translations of the Aramaic words of Jesus into English, Munira will allow us to experience Jesus’ teachings in the context of a Middle Eastern world view. This opens us to a broad spectrum of inclusive interpretations.
