In this episode, that was recorded at The Fellowship of Affirming Ministries Convocation in July, I talk with Davie Floyd about her multi-faith practice that includes Christianity, Judaism, Buddhism, and Sufism (amongst other work). How do we become a personal sanctuary of inclusion for people to help them discover their own paths? How do we support the seeker, and how can we help people find what they need? What does it mean for someone to be spiritual? How are we evolving as a society and as human beings?
Davie Floyd is a life-long member of the Pilgrim Rest Missionary Baptist Church in Dallas, TX where Rev. Curtis W. Wallace is the pastor. She is currently pursuing her PhD in Cognitive Studies and Education at Columbia University in New York. While in New York, she has joined Romemu, a Jewish renewal synagogue where David Ingber is Rabbi. She also regularly attends services at Rivers of Living Waters where Rev. Vanessa Brown is the senior pastor and often practices mindfulness with the Riverside Sangha which follows the Buddhist teachings of Thich Nhat Hanh. She is involved with several interfaith organizations in New York City. Though she is deeply spiritual and religious, her beliefs are largely agnostic. She lives a life oriented around realizing her full potential and coaching others to do the same.
