Imagine your life without words. How would you attain knowledge? How would you connect with other human beings?

Words have the power to lift someone up or tear someone down. Coming from the wisest among us, words can fill another with the spirit of life. Coming from the foolish among us, they can destroy.

This month’s Soul Food will explore the power of expression through a variety of sources: the sacred guidance of great religious Figures such as Jesus, Buddha and Bahá’u’lláh; the graceful poetry of Rumi and Yunus Emre, and the diverse insights of icons such as Amadeus Mozart, Helen Keller and Paulo Freire.

While sponsored by the local Bahá’í community, Soul Food is open to people of all faiths. It is an eclectic combination of music, poetry, prose and imagery. It provides a space to unite and reflect upon common themes and common threads that tie us all together.

This month’s Soul Food will feature the music of Kathy Stock, a well-known local inspirational performer. Kathy is currently working on her debut album.

The Soul Food program will begin at 2 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 30, at the Landing, Room 3018, University Centre, Memorial University, 1 Arctic Avenue. The program will last about an hour, followed by refreshments and an opportunity to engage in meaningful conversations.

Admission is free. All are welcome.
