Rabbi Lawrence Kushner
TEMPLE EMANU -EL SCHOLAR-IN-RESIDENCE 2004
Friday, March 19 • Saturday, March
Through his lectures,
articles and fifteen books,
Rabbi Lawrence Kushner
has helped shape the present
agenda for personal and
institutional spiritual renewal.
"When we say that God is everywhere, it does not mean that God is
invisible. It means that if we look closely, we can find God's presence
hidden everywhere... Because God is hidden in everything, all things
are connected to one another."
"Spirituality is religion experienced intimately. It's the core, the
INSPIRED... distilled essence of organized religion. Spirituality is where you
and God meet - and what you do about it."
