World Religion with Wakoh: Second Sundays of the Month, February through October, Sanctuary. Come explore eight of the world’s major religious traditions in this monthly series: Islam, Christianity, Confucianism, Hinduism, Buddhism, Yoruba, Judaism, and Daoism. We will consider what each tradition has to say about “what’s wrong with the world” and why; what solution each proposes; and who each reveres as exemplars. We will read and discuss Prothero’s book God Is Not One: The Eight Rival Religions that Run the World, and  learn more about each tradition from Rev. Dr. Wakoh Shannon Hickey, a scholar of religious history and interfaith engagement. Please bring your own copy of the book; they are available very inexpensively used, and $12-15 new in print, Kindle, and audio formats.
