Heart of the Qur'an CoverWe will base this program for the last Sunday of February, on the book of the same name (subtitle: “An Introduction to Islamic Spirituality”) by Lex Hixon, to learn more about Islam, especially the mystic Sufi tradition. “Hixon takes the view, shared by many Sufis, that a primary emphasis on love, justice, and the inner life, which has been labeled “Sufism” expresses, in fact, the original Islam” (page xxiii). We will view a short video by Hixon, then discuss key passages from the book.

The program, like all TS-MD Sunday programs, is free and open to the public. We welcome those who are searching, and respect all individuals’ life experiences.
