April 29 — Hinduism | May 6 — Buddhism | May 13 — Taoism

Join us for a 6-part series with Dr. Elizabeth Ursic that introduces the beliefs and practices of six of the major world religions. Starting with the oldest, we will cover Hinduism, Buddhism and Taoism in the Spring and continue with the Abrahamic faiths of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam in the Fall. These evenings will be tailored for our Saint Barnabas community and there will be time for questions as well as discussion and reflection.
