A Just Conversation with People of Other Faiths

A Just Conversation with People of Other Faiths

Spring Adult Education

Welcome_Book

Our 2016 Lenten series for Adult Education was all about understanding the universal spiritual insights from five religious traditions. The book, Welcome to the Wisdom of the World and its Meaning for You, by Joan Chittister guided us in exploring the Hindu, Buddhist, Jewish, Christian and Islam faiths.

Each week during Lent, Rev. Solberg we partnered with one of the religious leaders in our area and had a spiritual discussion about the commonality of our faiths presented through that religion’s chapter in Chittister’s book. You can watch each session’s video recording below:
