This coming Thur. Let's try for all of Deuteronomy!
First we are starting with a familiarization with the bible as it is so predominantly referenced here in the US. Later we want to explore other world religions and belief systems.
*Note: Come with any questions or comments. - Also you don't have to read this weeks chapters if you're already familiar and just want to listen or discuss.*
What we're hoping to accomplish:
An exploration of faith based mythologies. Example of discussions we might have regarding various religions: What are the morals of the stories? Why do humans continue belief systems based on these texts?
If there is enough interest I thought we could invite various religious leaders to come speak to us on occasion about their beliefs in a Q and A session. Just a few I was thinking of exploring would be:
Native American religions
We could invite others of course, and if we did get through what we want of the bible, we could explore other texts.
Any suggestions and ideas are greatly appreciated. I'll continue to repeat the meetup as long as there's interest.
