Our SMSE Circle gives you that opportunity to engage in Social Issues. We’re joining with Centers for Spiritual Living, Unity, and other New Thought communities, through the Association for Global New Thought’s Spiritually Motivated Social Uplift Ministry (S.U.M.). The SUM program is a perfect way to engage our community and for the greater community to join in.

Religious diversity is the fact that there are significant differences in religious belief and practice; thoughtful people what this means to society. Pluralistic approaches say that one religion is as good as any other. In contrast, exclusivist approaches say that only one religion is uniquely valuable. Finally, inclusivist theories try to steer a middle course by agreeing with exclusivism that one religion has the most value while also agreeing with pluralism that others still have significant religious value.. Awareness and understanding of the underlying issues of religious diversity is key to healing conflict—these sessions will go a long way to increase understanding and catalyze productive questions we can hold as a community.
Imagine a world in which doctrine and dogma disappeared and we embraced the concept of the Oneness of Humanity.
