Kindred Spirits Volume 2: SEEKERS[Program KS2]
Kindred Spirits Volume 2: SEEKERS

Rev. Howard Thurman"The experience of God is a living thing, but the thought about it is an invention of the mind. And by the time the mind gets through, the experience has moved on."

Rev. Howard Thurman (from Volume 2)

M.R. Bawa Muhaiyaddeen"God spreads his canopy of love over everyone. He keeps us under the shade of his grace. He gives us the milk of wisdom and soothes our tiredness. He sends peace to all lives. May we be one in tranquility."

M.R. Bawa Muhaiyaddeen (from Volume 2)
