Mystical Monday: reminder to keep an open mind


Translations by Daniel Ladinsky

On Saturday Margaret took over the nightly reading, as we switched from Rabia to St Francis of Assisi.  And this is what she read the night before our show reception at Pebble Hill Interfaith Church... 





BECAUSE HE GAVE BIRTH


So
Precious
is a person's faith in God, 
so precious;


never should we harm
that.


Because
He gave birth
to all


religions.

  2. The Pebble Hill site is very nice. I like the poem. Suzette and I have recently been attending Berkeley Unitarian. It sounds like Pebble Hill. I like it so much I feel like I'd like to be an Evangelical Unitarian, standing at BART Stations trying to convince people it's OK not to know who god is, maybe even better.

    Enjoy the show.

    1. Thanks. The show ends this Sunday. The people at Pebble Hill were great and I was impressed by their outreach to a town in Nicaragua
