Nazareth Retreat Center participated in the 2023 Festival of Faiths Sacred Hearts, Sacred Minds: Embodying Love Plaza at the Kentucky Center for the Arts on Nov. 16-17. SCNs Sharon Gray and Chris Kunze set up the Cosmic Walk at the event, which they had crafted for the General Assembly in June of this year.
The Festival of Faiths is an interfaith event of music, poetry, film, art and dialogue featuring internationally renowned spiritual leaders, thinkers and practitioners, where contemporary concerns are explored through the lens of diverse faiths. This was the first year they hosted an interactive “Embodying Love Plaza.”
The Cosmic Walk was met with enthusiasm as presenters, youth from local high schools, families and many registrants allowed the visual spiral representing the entire 13.8 billion years of the cosmic and evolutionary journey of the Universe to help them glimpse the deep and mysterious beauty of our sacred Cosmic Story.
