The month of May is a special month in the life of All Faith Seminary International. AFSI staff is busy preparing for graduation and ordination of their students; and, the excitement of our students have risen to a crescendo and intensity that feels palpable to everyone they meet. Yes, June is the month that they will become officially Interfaith Ministers, which will entitle them to hold the title of Reverend in front of their name.
But there is still one question that remains. When you are ordained an Interfaith Minister, what happens to you? Well, the answer to that question is – just about everything! You are no longer the person that you were in September when you decided to take our Interfaith program to become a Minister. There is the growth of your soul and mind as your passion and knowledge for Interfaith continues to grow. Love and respect as well as personal self respect for your conscience and convictions have taken on a new role in your life. And, your passion and resolve to make for a better world will continue to propel you to “Build Bridges” in earnest across cultures, belief systems, and traditions by finding your own personal way of spreading kindness, understanding, tolerance and love towards others.
All Faiths Seminary taught you all of the above and so much more. With that in mind, I can confidently say, There is nothing that can stop you now! How exciting for our graduates! Remember, we’re all in this together.
Congratulations to the upcoming AFSI Class of 2019!
May You Always Be and Succeed as a “Bridge Builder”
Changing the World for the Better One Person – One Heartbeat at a Time!
