A collection of inspirational videos and text featuring America’s finest religious thinkers, stories of personal faith, and reflections on spiritual topics, gathered from television broadcasts of 30 Good Minutes, a weekly multifaith program in Chicago.
This 30 Good Minutes broadcast features Eboo Patel, founder and president of Interfaith Youth Core, and Paul Raushenbush, Senior Vice President for Public Engagement at Auburn Seminary, in conversation with host, Daniel Pawlus, on a wide range of topics covering the American religious landscape, in particular, the growing Interfaith youth movement.
Dr. Eboo Patel is the founder and president of Interfaith Youth Core. His core belief is that religion is a bridge of cooperation rather than a barrier of division. He’s inspired to build this bridge by his faith as a Muslim, his Indian heritage, and his American citizenship. He has spoken about this vision at places like the TED conference, the Clinton Global Initiative, and the Nobel Peace Prize Forum, as well as college and university campuses across the country. He has written two books about interfaith cooperation, Acts of Faith and Sacred Ground.
The Rev. Paul Brandeis Raushenbush is a writer, editor and religious activist. He currently serves as Senior Vice President for Public Engagement at Auburn Seminary in New York City. From 2009-2015 he was the Executive Editor of Global Spirituality and Religion at The Huffington Post. From 2003-2011, he was the Associate Dean of Religious Life and the Chapel at Princeton University. An ordained American Baptist minister, Rev. Raushenbush speaks and preaches at colleges, churches and institutes around the country including The Chautauqua Institute, the Center for American Progress, the New America Foundation and the Aspen Institute.
This archived 30 Good Minutes program first aired in November 2011.
Rohina Malik - Reflection on Walking the Middle Path
I think the way to find the middle path begins with knowledge and reading the signs of God, that exist not only in the horizon, but within us. Have you walked on the middle path? Have you found Rumi’s field? My life is dedicated to walking on the middle path, and if I find Rumi’s field, I hope I’ll meet you there.
