In another one-time-only Front Porch Special Event, we are blessed beyond measure to welcome legendary Rumi scholar and translator, Coleman Barks, to our makeshift stage in the All Saints’ Episcopal Church Sanctuary. Join us for this incredible happening this February 23rd at 7PM.


Coleman Barks is the preeminent translator of the 13th-century Sufi poet, Rumi. He taught poetry and creative writing at the University of Georgia for 30 years, is author of numerous Rumi translations and has been a student of Sufism since 1977. Interviewed with Bill Moyers for PBS, Coleman explained Rumi, “is trying to get us to feel the vastness of our true identity–like the sense you might get walking into a cathedral–what Jesus referred to when he said, “The kingdom of God is within you.”

 

Eugene Friesen, internationally known cellist, composer and teacher, winner of Grammy Awards for musical contributions to Paul Winter Consort albums, is an artist-in-residence at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine in NYC and on the faculty of Berklee College of Music in Boston. He is passionate for the responsive flow of improvisatory music and has accompanied Coleman on many occasions.

The Front Porch Public House Church is a dialogue-focused congregation in Austin, Texas. A 501(c)(3) mission of All Saints’ Episcopal Church, we design and host over 50 gatherings a year in many different spaces with the conviction that open conversation across our traditional divides generates practical, organic spiritual experiences, and that these shared moments are key for those who desire to build more compassionate relationships and communities. All proceeds over expenses for this event go toward sustaining our mission.

Tickets to this event are non-refundable upon purchase. Parking is available for free in the lot at All Saints' or at a discounted rate when we validate tickets punched at the parking garage directly east of the All Saints' campus.
