The Los Angeles Conservancy recently organized a tour called ?City of the Seekers: L.A.?s Unique Spiritual Legacy.? The tour, which includes a stop in Glendale, takes visitors through a number of sites that fuse different religious traditions, including Christianity, yoga and Eastern philosophy. Have you ever had a moving experience or learned a valuable lesson from a religious tradition other than the one you practice? ? On more than one occasion, I have been touched by the practical aid a non-Christian (or, in my opinion, pseudo-Christian)

Trite look at Hollywood's golden days Gabrielle Reynolds is a prop buyer for Walt Disney Imagineering in Glendale and is married to fellow critic Patrick Reynolds. Somehow erroneously billed as a comedy, this film was full of trite likenesses to the golden days of Hollywood. Angelina Jolie's character watched Marilyn Monroe movies, dreaming of stardom. Sure enough, she turns into an incredibly shallow blond bombshell herself, aggressively pursuing her perfect life ... until the words of a street prophet make her reevaluate.

Laura Sturza HILLSIDE DISTRICT -- This year, the observance of Ramadan, a month of practices designed to increase spiritual purity, has been particularly poignant for the Khan family. Bibi Khan has lived in the United States since 1981. Like her 15-year-old daughter, Yasmin, she cried as she spoke about the ways that recent world events have transformed their experience of this most holy time of year. "This Ramadan, we're especially conscious of the misfortunes of people, people who celebrated this year without family members," said Khan, 48, "We're more appreciative of the freedom we have being American Muslims."

GLENDALE ? Sundown on Friday marked the beginning of Ramadan, a time when Muslims worldwide will begin a month of prayer and fasting. The occasion in part celebrates the time when the Qur'an was believed to be revealed from God to the prophet Muhammad and is also the ninth month in the lunar calendar. During the month many Muslims will refrain from eating and drinking during the daylight hours and will partake in extended prayer sessions at their local mosque, said Edina Lekovic, spokesperson for the Islamic Center of Southern California.

Irma Lemus CIVIC CENTER-- Rabbi Paula Reimers likens the flap over prayers before City Council meetings to the Old Testament story of the Prophet Jeremiah, who asked Jews exiled from Israel to pray for peace in their city. Reimers of Temple Emanu El said that although the Jews were driven from Israel to Babylonia in 586 B.C., Jeremiah told them to pray for peace and enlightenment for the rulers. "People should be allowed to pray. Our elected officials need all the help they can get. It's a tough job," Reimers said Tuesday.

Have you been shamed in your life? Shame is a unique emotion. It goes beyond embarrassment and permeates our very soul in a destructive manner. Some of us were shamed as children. Perhaps it was constant by a verbally abusive parent, or perchance it was a one-time incident with a teacher or some other authoritative figure. As a therapist, I listen to stories of people who have been shamed. Even a solitary incident can root itself into our spirits and change the way we view ourselves and those around us. Our self-esteem can be built upon a life of praise or a life of shame.

A rift is dividing our great land, one that threatens to erupt into violence in the streets, tearing our nation in two. On one side: darkness ? a powerful deceptive force, misleading the masses like a false prophet bent on our destruction. On the other side, light ? a beleaguered but dedicated contingent of comrades devoted to truth. I'm not talking about Red States vs. Blue States. I'm not talking about religious extremists bent on theocracy vs. defenders of freedom for all. I'm not talking about the war we've all been waiting for: a hair pulling, face-slapping, name-calling melee between Brangelina and Vincifer.

The Muslim holy month of fasting begins today and, for the first time, local followers of the faith will have a nearby location to meet and practice their traditions together in what can otherwise be a lonely and challenging period of self-restraint, community leaders said. Muslims abstain from food, drink and sexual activity during daylight hours for the month of Ramadan, which follows the lunar calendar and will last until Sept. 19 this year. While local Muslims have either gone without attending traditional evening prayer services or have driven to other mosques in the past, this year will be different, said Mahmoud Nouh, spokesman for the Islamic Center of Glendale.
COMMUNITY

With the holiday season upon us, the odds are good that some folks may be invited to a party, imbibe a bit too much spiked egg nog or eat a few bad mushrooms, pass out, and experience visions of surreal and bizarre events and characters dancing in their heads. Or, they could experience the exact same thing (sans the churning stomach and hangover) by simply having attended one of the four performances of “Nativity! The Musical 2012” presented by Burbank's Westminster Presbyterian Church this past week.
