WORLD RELIGION DAY
The Baha'i Community of Fargo-Moorhead is sponsoring an observance of World Religion Day. The aim of this special day is to foster understanding and communication among followers of all religions. Mitchell Silas, a Navajo artist and Baha'i from Arizona, will present a demonstration about the history and process of sand painting. Sunday, January 19, 3-5p.m. at the NDSU Alumni Center (Reimer Room), 1241 North University Drive, Fargo. Open and free to the public. Refreshments.

 

CONCEPTS OF GOD: An Interfaith Conversation
When people in different religions speak about God, are they talking about the same concept? Speakers from different faiths will briefly explain their understanding of God--and then welcome your questions. Join the conversation with representatives of Judaism, Islam, Christianity, the Baha'i Faith, Mysticism, and Native American Spirituality. 
When: Sunday, January 26, 2p.m. Where: Fargo Public Library (102 3rd Street North).
Refreshments. Information: David B. Myers, 701.388.7368. Sponsored by the Center for Interfaith Projects.
 
 
New Resources on Major Faiths and Secular Worldviews
Please consider visiting the Center's Interfaith Library to check out new books, magazines, and journals purchased with funds from a Bremer Grant. You are invited to come in and browse. Hours: Monday, Wednesday, and Friday--1-4p.m. If you wish to call to make an appointment: 701 388-7368.
 One-on-One Guidance
If you would like to explore a faith or secular worldview, we will provide you with suggestions for reading and, if you wish, introduce you to representatives of different religious communities or secular organizations. It is like a free tutorial. For example, if you would like to learn more about Buddhism and Buddhist meditation, we have the resources to guide your study. The same can be done if you have an interest in Hinduism, Islam, Judaism, etc.
