This episode of Sparks of Hope introduces us to Marie and Kevin Keogh, who share their thoughts on how, and why, connecting with each other, and with our spiritual natures, is vital for our wellbeing. In sharing some of their own experiences, Kevin and Marie explain why they believe that these connections offer energy, insight, solace and, most of all, hope.
Having had personal experience of the tangible benefits of prayer, Kevin and Marie have always tried to create spaces to bring people together and to foster this interconnectedness. For a number of years they ran a very successful public devotional gathering in the Hunt Museum in Limerick. At this weekly event people of many religions - and none - gathered to share prayers, poetry, reflections and friendship.
COVID-19 forced this event to be suspended. Undeterred by the new circumstances, the Keoghs regrouped and moved their ‘space’ online. Now an online devotional meeting has taken the place of the Hunt Museum gathering, and this too is going from strength to strength.
Marie and Kevin’s own personal experiences with prayer and spiritual connection help to motivate them. Combined with this personal motivation is a potent mix of hard work, openness and acceptance of others, which overall provides an example of how, we each can, in our on ways, foster wellbeing and become promotors of hope.
