Report on the Spiritual Trail and Laments
Jesse Kharbanda and Ian McIntosh tell us about May 18’s hike.
Says Ian McIntosh:
During our lamentation walk today we considered the poem by William Carlos Williams:
“It is difficult to get the news from poems.
Yet people die miserably every day for lack of what’s found there.”
While our theme was lamentation, the goal of studying Alfredo Jaar’s art installation was rejuvenation, rehumanization and giving thanks!
Says Jesse Kharbanda:
Did you know about the Indianapolis Spiritual Trail (IST)? It’s a hidden jewel along the Canal Towpath by the White River. Check out the Center for Interfaith Cooperation, which the IST is a project of, for their ongoing endeavors to help bring together the diverse fabric of our community. Thankful to my friend Ian Mcintosh of IUPUI, who conceived of the IST, and carries out important peace building work both in Indy & abroad. Here are some photos from a hike that Ian led today…
We’ll be sure to let everyone know when the next Indy Spiritual Trail walk is scheduled.
