The Golden Rule - Sermon by Peggy Sharyon

  1. 2. This final ChI sermon is dedicated to my family. I wrote this sermon with 2 intentions: sharing it today with all of you AND sharing parts of it with my family when we are together over the holidays I would love for them to gain, through the interfaith lens, even just a little glimpse of new spiritual awareness.
  2. 3. The process of becoming an Interfaith Minister is not an easy one – there ’ s a whole lot of growing and stretching and letting go. For me , learning about the traditions and the sacred texts of the world ’ s religions has cracked wide open my Christian cocoon. It has been both amazingly enlightening and , at times, daunting. AM I READY? How will I serve the spiritual needs of others? How might I integrate the Vedas and the Upanishads? Could I really be the voice of the Divine? Will my ministry include the Torah, the Qur ’ an, and the Guru Granth Sahib? Not too long ago, I got the ole sacred nudge that reminded me of something I have known all along. Something that truly is inter-intra-and multi-faith. Something that I have taught about a thousand times in the classroom and in raising my children. That something is the The Golden Rule .
  3. 4. The good ole days...
  4. 5. Interfaith and the Golden Rule Each of the major world religions values some version of The Golden Rule. In these next several slides I would like to share with you this point of agreement. I invite you to open your heart and consider that our world is in need of a greater awareness of this common standard for all. We are a human family!
  5. 6. Christianity In everything, do to others as you would have them do to you; for this is the law and the prophets ~Jesus, Matthew 7:12
  6. 7. Unitarianism We affirm and promote respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are all a part. ~Unitarian principle
  7. 8. Native Spirituality We are as much alive as we keep the earth alive. ~ Chief Dan George
  8. 9. Buddhism Treat not others in ways that you yourself would find hurtful ~ The Buddha, Udana-Varga 5:18
  9. 10. Islam Not one of you truly believes until you wish for others what you wish for yourself. ~The Prophet Muhammad, Hadith
  10. 11. Sikhism I am a stranger to no one; and no one is a stranger to me. Indeed I am a friend to all. ~ Guru Granth Sahib, p. 1299
  11. 12. Judaism What is hateful to you do not do to your neighbor. This is the whole Torah; All the rest is commentary ~ Hillel, Talmud, Shabbat 31a
  12. 13. Hinduism <ul><li>This is the sum of duty: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Do not do to others what would cause pain if done to you. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>~ Mahabharata 5:15:17 </li></ul></ul></ul>
  13. 14. The Golden Rule is a tremendous tool for promoting social justice, teaching compassion and ethics, and for putting a certain interfaith seminarian at ease. The remaining slides are a collection of images, poems and prayers that I have found to be particularly meaningful in opening my interfaith heart to the work of the Divine!
