World Religions – Culture, History, Information and Community Series

Learning never needs to cease. Learning keeps you healthy, keeps you from getting bored, and adds richness to your life. That is why World Religions’ classes have been developed to provide opportunities for continued educational growth, especially for our mature learners. The first class in this series is “Religions of the World, A Key to Understanding Cultures.” Religious beliefs are our most cherished values that give our lives meaning and bring families and communities together. So why does religion play a role in major world conflicts? You will learn about the major religions of the world, Hinduism, Buddhism, and the Monotheistic faiths: Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. You will leave with a new appreciation of your global friends and neighbors. And…know the difference between karma and jihad! Come with your questions!
This class will be on three Tuesdays, February 6, 13 and 20 from 2:30-3:30 pm at Northwest Iowa Community College, Building H, room 518. Fee for the class is $39. Coffee and cookies will be provided.
The instructor for the class will be Steve Gibbons. Steve has taught World Religions several times while an instructor at Northwest Iowa Community College. Prior to that he was a local church pastor for 20 years, and generally curious about faith and how people do religion differently. Come join in the CHIC program series!
