World Religions and Ways of Truth

Join us to study some of the world’s key belief systems, in a fun and friendly atmosphere. This seminar will touch upon the main aspects of the six major ways of Truth, as they are known and practiced today. We will start with the three Abrahamic religions (Judaism, Christianity and Islam), where we will read about God creating the world in six days (hence our six sessions). We will then explore Buddhism, Confucianism, Hinduism, Polytheism, and Shinto, some of which have their own creation stories and all of which reflect diverse ways of life. By the end of the seminar, we hope to have gained a good understanding of the differences as well as the similarities of these key belief systems. No prior knowledge of the topic is required and all relevant material will be provided. Just bring along your curious minds and open hearts!
