Oprah Winfrey Presents 'Belief'
Stephen Williams stashed this in Belief
Oprah Winfrey Presents 'Belief' Journeying 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. Seven billion people, searching for connection, redemption, meaning. Oprah Winfrey presents the seven-night event, "Belief," a groundbreaking television event exploring humankind's ongoing search to connect with something greater than ourselves. Journeying to the far reaches of the 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.
"To ask these questions is really the privilege of being human." "Hope is the simple belief that things can change." What makes something sacred? http://www.oprah.com/belief/Oprah-on-What-Makes-Something-Sacred-Video "Hold whatever it is you cherish within the realm and space of truth. Because only the things that are absolutely born of truth can truly be sacred. There is no difference between that which is sacred and that which is truth. #Belief - Oprah" This begs for a followup: "What is truth?" I'm really curious what she would say since it is unlikely to be: "Truth is that which has predictive value."
PS: Her explanation could be made to fit almost anything. It a good opening pitch of a cult, for instance. But, let's just plug in the variables for me: Science is Sacred.
Et Voila! I expected her to feed the wolf on this one: http://www.oprah.com/belief/Oprah-on-the-Nature-of-Humanity-Video
This will be fun.
I wonder why Oprah decided to do Belief.
I think it is clear that she continues to search for and validate her own belief, knowing that many are watching her and that she's trying to be honest. She already had a film-length piece called Beyond Belief.
Does she have a religion she's promoting or does she just want to celebrate faith in general?
I think it must be faith in general..she does not seem religious in the classical sense
Milind I believe you are right!
