African Indigenous Spirituality

In the creation of our Beloved Community this sermon will ask: What contributions does the ancient spiritual wisdom of Africa have to offer at this time? Indigenous African Spirituality differs from what we in the West may refer to as “religion.” There is no fixed creed or closed theological system as seen in some forms of Judaism, Christianity and Islam. It encompasses, at its most basic level, a universal belief in survival and triumph over death and the immortality of the human soul.
