Soul Sunday is a must read, not only for families, but for everyone who wishes to understand better the wonderful and diverse world we live in today. With her delightful and refreshing style, I look forward eagerly to more thoughtful words from Carrie Brown-Wolf in the future.
—Pastor Bill Cox
Through her seminars and now through her book, Soul Sunday, Carrie Brown-Wolf is offering critically needed direction to religiously blended families yearning to make their homes spiritually whole. Within the family framework she helps us find the fruitful point where religious conviction and spiritual exploration can reinforce each other. Moreover, Soul Sunday does this by offering practical activities and projects for the family to do together. Together, the family can overcome whatever fear there may be of other world religions, and as the family members grow in knowledge, so too do they grow together.

As a Lutheran pastor keenly interested in educating children in the inclusive teachings of Jesus, Soul Sunday provides just the kind of guidance I’ve been looking for.
—Pastor Rich Mayfield, author of Reconstructing Christianity
As parents of two elementary school-aged children living abroad, my husband and I are constantly struggling with how to teach and maintain our Indian culture while learning about the cultures to which we are exposed daily in our host countries. Because there is no structured, organized course we can attend abroad, Soul Sunday will be the perfect tool for us to share and openly discuss information about topics we hear about around us and in the news. Soul Sunday should be required reading for not only expatriate families, but all families interested in learning about the world and understanding their neighbors.
—Hina Pandya, M.D.
Soul Sunday is a unique tool that provides a forum for families to discuss spiritual, moral, and ethical issues outside the confines of formalized religion. Learning about the observances of different religions and cultures can facilitate meaningful dialogue about what matters to families and why. Soul Sunday provides families with a framework to organize celebrations and rituals in a way that can work for each family.
