The running time including the question and answer sessions is 2 hours and 5 minutes, so the meeting will start on time in order to allow some time for discussion. This is not your normal religious studies class that seeks to learn the "truths" of the religion. Rather we look to see if there are any truths in the various religions. We ask such questions as does it teach acceptable morals; is it historical; why are the sacred texts given such esteem?
