Last month the congregation I serve hosted a lecture series on different faith traditions. It was our contention that with the current political climate and with people not knowing much about different faith traditions, it would be good to hear about them. So we invited spiritual leaders and/or academics in that religious tradition to come and lecture for a while and take questions. We hosted 5 traditions: Buddhism, Judaism, Islam, Eastern Orthodox, and Lutheran.
This event was a huge success! We had from 60-100 people attend each event with half of those people being from the wider community.
