Have you ever asked, "Why are there so many different religions?

January 2, 2019

 

We are going to explore these kinds of questions for six weeks, beginning on January 16, and I invite you to join the conversation.  The book from which we will work is CHRISTIANITY AND WORLD RELIGIONS, by the Reverend Adam Hamilton.  You can get the book from Amazon.com and it also comes in a Kindle format.

Here is a sample of what we will consider:

Suggested Prayer for Inspiration:  

"From the cowardice that dare not face new truth
From the laziness that is contended with half truth,

    • Connect and

    • Differ

  • We hope to come to understand eventually that people are unique, too, and that not all Hindu, Buddhist, Islam, Jewish or Christian believers are the same.
