A Book Group Exploring the Diversity of Religion

WHAT?Learning Circle
WHEN?April 15 – May 6, 2024
Mondays at 8:30 AM Pacific / 10:30 AM Central
WHERE?Online Via Zoom

Readings on Faiths Around the World is a book group that reads and discusses books covering the vast diversity of world faiths. Of course, the standard seven world religions will be included but we will also explore less well-known religious/spiritual groups including Afro-Caribbean, Bahá’í, Humanist, Jain, Pagan, Zoroastrian, and more. The only prerequisite needed for this group is a desire to learn more about the world’s religious traditions.

Please come to each session having read the assigned section and be prepared to participate in the discussion with the group. Future books to be discussed, and dates will be provided here as the sessions are scheduled.


Join me for an interesting book by Karen Armstrong, author of over a dozen books concerning world faiths. In her current book, Sacred Nature: Restoring Our Ancient Bond with the Natural World, Armstrong probes various world religions in an effort to find help in re-sacralizing the natural world.  She believes, like many others, that time is running out before we destroy out home and the home of all others that share the planet.

Begins Monday, April 15th at 8:30 AM Pacific.
