SPIRITUAL AND RELIGIOUS DIVERSITY in our NEIGHBOURHOOD
Instructor: The Rev. Dr. Andrew Irvine
Dates: October 16 through November 27, 2017
How do we co-exist and foster spirituality in a neighbourhood of religious diversity? What does it mean to be uniquely Christian while honouring the faith stance of others? This course will examine what it means to go beyond tolerance to love. Religious Studies Professor Douglas John Hall (retired) of McGill reminds us that Jesus did not teach us to "tolerate our neighbours" but rather "to love our neighbours." It is the assertion of this course that religious diversity is not a problem within our neighbourhood but rather the opportunity for spiritual growth. This course will examine the changing religious scene in our communities, promote an understanding of other faith orders and develop possible ways of communication sponsoring community harmony and spiritual growth.
