Learn Something New By Getting Involved With Spiritual Literacy Month

December marks the start of spiritual literacy month, a time to reflect on one’s own spirituality; whether that be through organised religion, your own spirituality or just learning to understand other people’s spirituality.  

Spiritual Literacy Month was created by Frederic and Mary Brussat in 1996 as a way to help people respect all the world’s religions and the culture that comes alongside them. 

Frederic and Mary Brussat are authors of the book “Spiritual Literacy: Reading the Sacred of Everyday Life”, which is a book that is compiled of 650 examples of spiritual perspectives using readings of passages from a variety of spiritual sources and is also the basis of a 26-part film series by the same name. 

The goal of the month is to encourage anyone who is interested into reading at least one book about spirituality and how doing so can have some positive effects on your mind. 

It’s important to remember that being spiritual does not automatically mean religious, there are many ways one can be spiritual and even if you’re not, you can just learn something new and interesting about a community. 

One believed benefit of trying out this challenge is that it can give advice and open your mind in ways you may not have previously thought, and even if you don’t agree with the content written you have opened yourself up to a new perspective.
