Rev. Norma Osman
Chairman & Senior Minister Reverend Norma Osman’s ministry was in Hospice for more than twenty years, providing patient care and bereavement counseling. She served several terms on the board of directors; developed and delivered training to volunteers. In 1999, Reverend Osman co-founded the non-denominational Interfaith Truth Center in suburban Atlanta. As the Senior Minister at the Center, Norma conducts seminars and classes on meditation and spirituality to provide a springboard for inspiring individual self-discovery and spiritual growth. Her diverse experience allows her to speak on a wide range of topics. She has been married for over forty five years – parented two grown children. Norma gushes, “My four grandchildren are the most wonderful kids on the earth at this time!” Recently, she led a study group on advanced numerology. Most days Norma is at the center, eagerly open for a good joke.
Co-Founder and Treasurer Betty did not need to build a bridge to new-age spiritualism from her Louisiana Catholic upbringing. A very old soul, she was BORN a passionate free-thinker with fierce independence, and an innate knowing of all things now considered “new-age and metaphysics.”Betty’s laughing blue eyes betray her even in a serious discussion. Especially when talking about her dedication to the InterFaith Truth Center, Betty cannot contain that fun loving smile. She’s one of a rare breed who commits to a project heart and soul. Forever! Yet, Betty wants to have a good time in the process. A belief in natural health and holistic well-being radiates from Betty. She walks her talk. An amazing lifetime of experience and knowledge empowers anyone privileged to engage her help. And, that is what really excites, Betty – helping others. She thrives on it! A single mom raising three teenagers taught Betty to “waste not, want not.” She passed that philosophy onto her three grandchildren. Betty’s face lights up and her dazzling smile radiates like the sun when she shares her years of devotion to the InterFaith Truth Center.
