SPECIAL ANNOUNCEMENT:

Pilgrimage PILGRIMAGE ACROSS ALL FAITHS
The Universal Search for the Divine

Join documentary filmmaker Leo Eaton at St. Paul’s United Church of Christ in Westminster on April 15 and over the following five Friday evenings for a series of screenings and discussions about the commonalities and differences between faith traditions through the practice of pilgrimage, a sacred tradition as old as humanity.

Through 2013 & 2014, Leo Eaton and an international crew traveled to some of the most sacred pilgrimage sites around the world, following American pilgrims from different faith traditions (Christian, Buddhist, Muslim, Hindu, Jewish and African Orisa) on six great Sacred Journeys for his 2014 PBS series SACRED JOURNEYS (with Bruce Feiler).  In France, India, the Holy Land, Japan, Saudi Arabia and Nigeria, six very different pilgrimages reveal the universality of humanity’s desire to travel outside life’s comfort zones to seek a more direct connection with the Divine.

Each Friday through May 20, Leo Eaton will screen a different program in the SACRED JOURNEYS series, describe what he and his colleagues learned about themselves and other faiths during the course of the filming, and encourage an audience discussion about pilgrimage, inter-faith understanding, and whatever other topics the films may suggest after the screening.   The opening program on April 15 will be HAJJ, the pilgrimage to Mecca all Muslims try to take at least once in a lifetime.

  1. Thank you, thank you, Rev. Dr. Marty Kuchma, for writing THE best “letter to the editor” to appear in the Carroll County Times so far this century. This compassionate, reasoned plea for expecting better of our elected officials is a breath of fresh, honest, spot-on air!
    Jesus never wanted private “clubs” of politicians to achieve their political ends by claiming that they had a monopoly on a certain “brand” of Christianity.
    Please write again!!

  2. We were coming to visit on Sunday, Dec. 28, and shop around the town after services. But, I do not think we can make that one early service you are having– we were looking forward to making the 10:45 AM service. Another time, perhaps. Larry
