“I Chose AIHT”
Bachelors graduate, 2009;
What inspires me most about
AIHT teachings is:
I am inspired by the strong interfaith perspective
of the AIHT curriculum, along with the emphasis on mysticism and mystery.
AIHT, it seems to me, seeks not just to train students academically
but to help them in the quest for spiritual development and deepening.
I’m also inspired to witness the constant efforts, on the parts of AIHT
staff and faculty, to keep the program dynamic; to prevent stagnation.
The curriculum is always being adapted in response to new knowledge
and perceived needs.
The ways I incorporate these life lessons into
my career and personal development include:
As an Interfaith Minister
and Orthodox Catholic priest, I am called to serve in diverse settings.
My AIHT studies have given me knowledge that enables me to help people
of different spiritual traditions, with confidence and a mind opened
for ongoing learning. I have also found the healing emphasis of the
AIHT curriculum especially helpful in my ministry, as I am often called
to be a healer as well as a preacher, teacher and counselor. The spiritual
healing techniques I’ve learned through my AIHT courses have helped
me expand on my God-given healing gifts and be of greater service to
people in physical or psycho-spiritual pain.
In closing I would like
Pray. Learn. Pray some more. Live in the Divine Mystery
with gratitude and awe. The Kingdom of God is, indeed, coming and is,
indeed, already here. Play your part in this holy paradox by seeking
what's hidden from you while revealing the secrets, hidden in your own
heart, so others may find what they seek.
