Lunch & Learn: 5 weekly sessions
Multifaith Perspectives on Modern Issues
Noon – 1 p.m., Thursdays, 18 Jan – 15 Feb. 2018, Doors open 11:40 a.m.
Chapter Room, Christ Church Cathedral, Burdett entrance
The new series titled, “Lunch & Learn: Multifaith Perspectives on Modern Issues” is scheduled to be offered over lunch times on the five Thursdays between 18 January and 15 February, inclusive. This is a follow-up to a successful series held in the Fall and Winter of 2016 / 2017 (An Introduction to Religions of the World). Participants are invited to bring lunch if they wish. Tea, coffee and juice will be provided, thanks to the generous support of Christ Church Cathedral. Last year several attended as part of their workday lunch time.
Each week a panel of three or four leaders of diverse world faiths will respond to a predetermined, current topic or theme that has contemporary relevance.
The intent of this series is to move beyond introductions to religions and look at how faith communities hold beliefs informed by the scriptural authority of their faith. This process maybe described as “Scriptural Reasoning” or “Scriptural Reflection” – reflecting together on sacred texts.
