“Come into the Presence of God” – 6 December, 4.30pm

A celebration of the Divine in Words, Music & Silence

As part of the Parliament of the World’s Religions to be held in Melbourne, December 2009, this exquisite multi-art form programme will weave voices from all the sacred traditions into a single spiritual unity.

Moving from the ecstatic to the visionary and the meditative, it will celebrate the Divine and our human relationship to the Divine through words – poetry, scripture, revelation –  as well as inspired music from leading sacred musicians, and brief but powerful silence.

The invitation is to know ourselves to be, always and inevitably, in the presence of God. The emphasis will be on receiving the great universal teachings of love from East and West and especially on those that effortlessly lead us to an appreciation of love at the centre of our lives and as a unifying and healing force for all of humanity, through the most profound expressions of the numinous and Eternal.
