is envisioned as a broad gathering of spiritual seekers, a new kind of hour-long hybrid event on Zoom — combining an initial conversation on that day's theme, followed by quiet communion in worship and small-group breakouts.
Everyone is welcome!
The opening conversations feature a variety of dynamic guests from different backgrounds, exchanging views on each week’s theme. The quiet worship allows us to commune with the Spirit within. And the breakouts give everyone an opportunity to share their stories, as we celebrate the many paths we walk along the unfolding spiritual journey.

Living Our Spiritual Unity
Honoring Our Religious Diversity
(Rescheduled from July 10th)
With special guests Candace Kant - Pagan Traditions
& Keith Thomas - The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints
Join host Marvin Gawryn in a conversation with his longtime friends and colleagues, Candace Kant and Keith Thomas, who serve with him on the Board of the Interfaith Council of Southern Nevada. Although rooted in very different religious traditions, they and their twenty colleagues on the Board have increasingly experienced an underlying spiritual unity over the the years that is deeply satisfying … despite their religious diversity!
In this Homecoming gathering, Marvin and his guests will try to unpack the nature of that deeper spiritual unity — where it comes from, and how they have fostered it. And how it has allowed them to truly honor (and even celebrate) the different paths they walk in their unique faith traditions.
Some of the central spiritual themes we will explore:
How do we understand Spirit, the Highest Reality?
Whether Principle, Presence, or Person, how do we engage with the Source of everything around us -- that which is most real and important in our lives? How can we develop a sustaining connection or relationship with that Highest Reality … every day, even in every moment?
How do we connect with the Spirit within us?
How do our contemplative practices — meditation, prayer, worship — help us to connect with that Highest Presence in the deepest place inside of us? How can we, coming from our different traditions, help each other discover and develop this experience of intimacy with “God”, however we understand her/him/it?
