Unity Café Interfaith Devotionals

 

The Unity Café is a new online Interfaith meet up, sponsored and produced by All Things Baha’i, for people who would like to reflect, inspire and share their ideas on themes and common threads that tie us all together. We present an organized devotional followed by reflection on quotations from the different faiths, philosophers, authors, leaders and indigenous cultures from all over the world. 

 

An important component of the reflection is how we can use the inspiration gained at the meet up to create change in our own lives and to serve others in our neighborhoods and communities.

 

The theme of our very first devotional will be on “Learning to Love“. Due to this being our first program, we will not follow with a reflections portion. Instead we will invite you to provide us your thoughts about the program and how frequently you would like to see these offered.

Lynette grew up in the small Wisconsin town of Boscobel, home of the Gideon Bible. After attending college at the University of Wisconsin, Madison and Platteville achieving an A.A. degree she decided a break was needed n order to figure out which academic discipline she wanted to pursue. While contemplating intensely on her choices she met and married Fernando. Lynette returned to college and studied Small Business Management and Bookkeeping. After several years of working in management she found herself once again meditating on her future. The powers that be answered and she returned to the academic life in pursuit of a double major in Physical and Occupational Therapy. She found time to assist in the Special Resource Center helping quadriplegics and the legally blind in the classroom setting as well as reading for the blind. In the midst of her professional goals she had a difficult pregnancy which temporarily (...so she thought) would interrupt her coursework.

After 7 years of fighting, Fernando passed away. (2003) This experience...
