Durham County Library Hosts Discussion on Sacred Rest

Program: Sacred Rest: A Time Sensitive Matter
Date: Thursday, May 30
Time: 7 p.m.
Location: Main Library, 300 N. Roxboro St.
Cost: Free and open to the public

About: In today’s culture, many people think of rest as a reward, but in many religious and spiritual traditions, rest and the notion of Sabbath have deep import as a practice. On Thursday, May 30 at 7 p.m. at the Main Library, 300 N. Roxboro St., Durham County Library will host Frank Stasio for a community conversation about what it means to approach rest from a place of sacredness.

Stasio, the host of “The State of Things” on NC Public Radio, will explore what different traditions have to offer the understanding of sacred rest, joined by a panel of representatives from different religions, including Rabbi Steve Sager, Rabbi Emeritus of Beth El Synagogue in Durham; Claudia Horwitz, Founding Director of Stone Circles at The Stone House; and Usha Rajagopalan, former Hindu chaplain at Duke University.

This program is sponsored in part by Durham Library Foundation. For more information, contact Joanne Abel at 919-560-0268.
