Tell us the Good Stuff!
Come, come as you are...
Whirling Dervishes are the disciples of Mevlana Celaleddin Rumi, a Sufi Saint who lived in Konya, Turkey, 14th Century.
Mevlana, who is still revered very much in Turkey today as a "Saint of Love," was famous for his call
"Come, come as you are...
No matter what you've done in the past...
No matter how many times you have sinned... Come, come...
Our house is a house of hope, not a house of despair..."
(How can anyone say "no" to such an invitation?)
