Religious diversity: What do we do?

Newton Congregational United Church of Christ, 308 E. Second St. N., will host a series of monthly educational opportunities to learn more about a diversity of religious traditions that participants might better understand their neighbors (both near and far) and be empowered to love them more fully.

During the opening session from 6 to 7:30 p.m. Tuesday Timothy Knepper will address what “religion” is, offer a broad survey of the diversity of religions of the world and provide options for what we do with this diversity. Knepper is professor of philosophy at Drake University, author and editor of a variety of books, and director of The Comparison Project. The Comparison Project is a public program in global, comparative religion and local, lived religion based in Des Moines.

This event is free and open to all.

Contact the Rev. Jessica Petersen at 641-792-3773 with any questions regarding the event.

Congregational United Church of Christ is an open and affirming congregation where no matter who you are or where you are on life’s journey, you are welcome.
