Holy curiosity and holy trouble

At the Parliament of the World’s Religions and at a conference of LGBTQ religious leaders, my heart reawakened. 

Thousands of participants at the Parliment of the World's Religions wear head covering and sit together as equals on the floor of the Salt Palace Convention Center on Friday while members of the Sikh religious community serve food at a traditional Langar.

Members of the Sikh religion feed thousands who attended the Parliament of the World’s Religions in Salt Lake City, Utah. Langar is a 500-year-old Sikh tradition, in which vegetarian food is served to all for free, regardless of religion or class. (© Al Hartmann/Salt Lake Tribune)
