Online Chat Series
Spirituality.com is an open-faith forum where people from a variety of beliefs and backgrounds share spiritual ideas, inspiration and prayers. In observance of the anniversary of 9/11, Spirituality.com will present stories of triumph from people who dealt with challenges related to the tragedy, and a community of support. Site visitors can connect with one another to discuss the impact of the tragedy one year later, and how their spiritual paths and searches have continued and potentially supported them during these times.
There will be a live chat series featuring New York City Fire Department Battalion Chief John A. Jonas as well as renowned spiritual authors and radical thinkers. The chat guests will discuss their spiritual-based ideas that have helped them change their outlook and find hope in a changed world. On Wed., Sept. 11, an open chat room will be available all day, literally from 12:01 a.m. ET until 11:59 p.m. ET for your community discussions on related topics.
