Oprah Winfrey hosted over 100 faith and spiritual leaders for a special advance screening of the upcoming landmark television series “Belief,” which explores faith and spirituality around the world, airing seven consecutive nights October 18-24 at 8 PM.
The screening and dinner brought together a diverse group of some of the world’s most prominent faith leaders and cultural influencers to preview the “Belief” series, which explores the uniqueness of individual faith traditions and examines the threads of common humanity that bind us together.
Guests included Pastor Rob Bell, Devon Franklin, Marianne Williamson, Dr. Serene Jones, Dr. James Perkins, Rabbi Jill Jacobs, Imam Mohamed Magid, Suhag Shukla, Dr. Rajwant Singh who is the founder and chairman of the Sikh Council on Religion and Education.
Oprah Winfrey presents “Belief,” a landmark television event exploring humankind’s ongoing search to connect with something greater than ourselves. This groundbreaking original series invites viewers to witness some of the world’s most fascinating spiritual journeys through the eyes of the believers. Traveling to the far reaches of world, and to places cameras have rarely been, “Belief” searches the origins of diverse faiths and the heart of what really matters. From the epic to the intimate, webbed throughout each hour are stories of people on spiritual journeys, taking them to sacred spaces, including: the largest peaceful gathering in the history of the world as a group of believers seek redemption along the banks of a holy river
Dr. Rajwant Singh added, “I was privileged to be invited by Oprah Winfrey for the opening of the belief series at her home. I felt so inspired that I sang – Tun Tun karta tun huya, mujh me raha na hun – line from Sikh scriptures – By saying repeatedly You! You! that I have become You. I have lost me!
Event attendees Valarie Kaur, Sikh and interfaith leader remarked, “Oprah’s cinematically stunning new ‘Belief’ series captures the true nature of divine love, and offers viewers the spiritual strength to keep walking the path of Gandhi, Heschel, and Kin
Oprah Winfrey’s Belief series will give a glimpse and inside view of various faiths. It gives a chance to each faithful to experience their own spiritual roots while admiring the neighbor dive deep in his or her faith tradition. Through the precious moments captured in these film series, one can discover the beauty hidden in one’s own faith. One can have a very personal experience of oneness – the underlying basis of our own existence. Tragically this usually remains undiscovered by most humans because we surround ourselves with a limited view of the world. These series will expand horizons of humanity and help us connect with each other and have a deeper respect of world’s faith traditions.”
