The Fountain Tour

Over the next 2.5 weeks, I'll be traveling to Tirana, Albania, Singapore, Australia (Melbourne and Sydney), Jakarata, Indonesia, and Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, to participate in inter-religious dialogues sponsored by The Fountain Magazine:

The first stop, in Tirana, is for a conference on "Global Perspectives on the Religious, Cultural, and Societal Diversity in the Balkans:  Fethullah Gulen Experience as a Model."  You can access the conference program here:, and read more about Albania and the conference here:

My paper is entitled "Sacred Space in the Thought of M. Fethullah Gulen and the Hizmet Movement."  The full paper is attached.

I'll be posting occasional comments, and perhaps some pictures, during my travels, as circumstances permit.  Please feel free to follow along!
