On Sunday, October 18th, Oprah and her team are launching a 7-night soul-filled series called, “Belief.” With over three years in the making, this seven night event promises to highlight the journey for meaning and connection as we all search for something greater than ourselves. So for us, this seems like the perfect moment…when the past meets the horizon for the future, to jump back in. This program promises to take us all over the world, exploring faith, culture and human connections. Over seven nights, OWN’s team will be offering us the picture of understanding and painting the backdrop of the millions of different experiences people are having each day…and perhaps bringing us closer to an understanding that our differences may actually be more similar than we realize.
As divine timing would have it, the event begins almost 4 years to the day that Oprah’s OWN “Super Soul Sunday” premiered in 2011. At that time, we were in Atlanta at the O-You magazine event, trying to find a location to watch the first program. A lifetime later, still taking the OWN journey with her and seeing the evolution of not just programming but of the people and spirit of the network, this series almost feels like another milestone in the path.
And more than a milestone, this feels like it’s coming from Oprah’s heart…
So for seven days…and a few days leading up to it, some people will be with Oprah at the NYC premier event (so excited for them!!!) , others will jump into communities offering screenings that are happening all over the country (hope they stream live!). Some will be hosting Belief Breaking Bread parties by hosting friends, family or a local event. And we will be showing up, each night on Twitter, to just talk about the experience as we watch with the rest of the Twitterverse…and open our hearts and our eyes to all the world that Oprah and the Belief Team will be laying at our doorstep. We hope you all join us as we move through this journey… #Belief
Series premiere: Sunday, October 18 at 8 p.m. ET/PT
