What the Spirit-Wisdom of the Mystics Reveals to Us Today

Wednesday, November 8, 2017 | 6:30pm

Jesus gave Peter the mandate to “Feed my sheep” (John 21: 17) and there is no better way to do this than an invitation to a discussion on mysticism and to break bread together. In this spirit, we will gather in St. Joseph's Chapel for dinner, a lecture and small-group discussion.


The Rev. Paul-Gordon Chandler, KAHLIL GIBRAN: An Unparalleled Spiritual Guide for Our Times

Paul-Gordon Chandler is an author, interfaith advocate, art curator, social entrepreneur and US Episcopal priest. An authority on the Middle East and on Christian-Muslim relations, he grew up in Senegal, West Africa, and has lived and worked extensively in the Middle East and North Africa in leadership roles within faith-based publishing, ecumenical relief and development agencies and the Episcopal Church.  From 2003-2013 he was the Rector of the international Episcopal church in Cairo, Egypt.  Based now out of the Chicago area, he is the Founder and President of CARAVAN, an international peacebuilding non-profit/NGO that uses the arts to build bridges between the creeds and cultures of the Middle East and West.
