25th Anniversary Speaker Series

Tune in online through Zoom for our Sunday services. For instructions on how to join the Zoom meeting, email coordinator@cvuu.org.

This Sunday we will hear from Danielle Ross, Assistant Professor of Islamic and Asian history at Utah State University. Her talk, “In Search of Fairy Princesses and Divine Love,” explores The Song of Sayf al-Muluk, a Sufi poem widely read in the Turkish-speaking world from the 1500s to the early 1900s. The poem begins with a young man’s search for a beautiful woman, but soon unfolds into a metaphor for human beings’ striving for unity with God.

Danielle’s talk will be the first of a series of lectures held the second Sunday of the month through the end of the year as one means to mark CVUU’s 25th anniversary. Following Danielle’s presentation there will be a moderated period for question and answer.
