Knowing very little about Turkey or the Gulen Movement, I eagerly accepted an invitation by the Rumi Forum to travel to Turkey in May. Eradicating illiteracy is one way of peace building and this seems to be at the heart of much of what I learned about the Gulen movement. The things I saw and did while in Turkey put “flesh” on previously held ideas while the people I met put “heart and soul” into the experience. When all is said and done, it is the richness of relationships that we are able to develop that heal the world.
