This Week World Religions (May 23 - May 26)
Class 1 Final Exam
Class 2 Final Exam
The religious diversity of our 21st Century world is evident in every area of culture. The aim of this course is to gain an understanding of the world's faiths and an appreciation for the contributions made by each. I believe that everyone should be fully and enthusiastically committed to his/ her own faith. Religion invites commitment. But I further believe that we can be influenced and challenged by other faiths and by the people who practice them. Your participation is a most essential part of this course. Your ability to interpret your own experience and the experience of others will help the rest of us to get a more complete picture of religious faith.
The search for truth is one way hard and, in another way, easy.
For it is evident that not one of us can ever master it fully or miss it wholly.
Each one of us adds a little to our knowledge of nature, and from all the facts assembled arises a certain grandeur.
