I have a new book coming out on August 24th, 2021 “The Peacemaker's Path: Multifaith Reflections to Deepen Your Spirituality” Now more than ever, people are painfully divided politically, religiously, and culturally. And yet, there is a commonality in our faith traditions that can help us turn away from polarization and create a greater sense of community in which our differences are honored. The Peacemaker's Path brings together wisdom from the world's major religious traditions, including Bahá'í, Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, Jainism, Judaism, Native American spiritualities, Sikhism, Taoism, and Zoroastrianism, showing that we have much more in common than what divides us. Through daily readings that explore the tenets, teachings, writings, and prayers of these diverse faith traditions, you will gain new insight, understanding, and connection with people from different religious backgrounds. Each day offers a reflection, scripture passages from the world's religions, questions to contemplate, a call to action, and a closing prayer. May we realize the tremendous importance of building bridges of peace in our own lives, communities, and world. Loving our friends is easy; loving the "other" will bring shalom. Before I went into the ministry, I was a professional actor performing in over 50 musicals and dramas. My novel "Blurring the Lines " tells of my experience in the entertainment business in Los Angeles, California. The theme running through the book is "What Are You Willing to Sell Your Soul For?" I have a Degree in Speech and Theater from Ball State University, Muncie, Indiana, and a Master of Divinity degree from Christian Theological Seminary, Indianapolis, Indiana. I have been a leader in Interfaith ministries for over 35 years. I have helped create four interfaith organizations, including the Carmel Interfaith Alliance and the Indiana Multifaith Network. https://jerryzehr.com/ (https://jerryzehr.com/) https://www.facebook.com/jerry.zehr (https://www.facebook.com/jerry.zehr) https://twitter.com/jerryzehr (https://twitter.com/jerryzehr) https://www.linkedin.com/in/jerryzehr/ (https://www.linkedin.com/in/jerryzehr/) https://www.instagram.com/jerryzehr/ (https://www.instagram.com/jerryzehr/) https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCq4oMHKZY3JuoQr88Goyz_Q (https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCq4oMHKZY3JuoQr88Goyz_Q) This podcast uses the following third-party services for analysis: AdBarker - https://adbarker.com/privacy Podtrac - https://analytics.podtrac.com/privacy-policy-gdrp Chartable - https://chartable.com/privacy
