Pastor’s Sabbatical Helps Him Experience Strands of Religious Diversity

Jim Papile, of St. Anne’s Episcopal Church in Reston, Virginia, wanted to travel to places where Hinduism, Buddhism, Islam, Eastern Orthodoxy and contemporary American culture were dominant in order to experience how the faithful expressed their religious beliefs in their day-to-day lives.

Jim Papile, of St. Anne’s Episcopal Church in Reston, Virginia, wanted to travel to places where Hinduism, Buddhism, Islam, Eastern Orthodoxy and contemporary American culture were dominant in order to experience how the faithful expressed their religious beliefs in their day-to-day lives. His pilgrimage led him to the monastery of Shantivanum, to the Hindu Sivananda Ashram, to a silent retreat with Tibetan Buddhist teachings in Dharamsala in India and to Saint John’s monastery on Patmos in the Greek isles. His work was made possible in part by a Lilly Clergy Renewal Grant.
