The Explorers Bible Class hands2

Join The Explorers new thought-provoking Bible study, "Cultural Literacy for Religion: Everything the Well-Educated Person Should Know."  In a 24/7 news cycle world continuously blurring the lines of understanding, world religion - what people believe and how they practice it - has become a victim to interpretation and little understanding. Get the real facts and experience the depth and breadth of the world's religions from all angles—historical, theological, and cultural. Delve into beliefs, symbols, and practices of other traditions, and how they impact our own Christian beliefs.

 When: Monday evenings, starting September 25, at 7:30 p.m.
 Where: Room 207 of the Hanger Building
