A song once asked, “what’s so funny ‘bout peace, love and understanding?”
For the organizers of the Cranberry Area Diversity Network’s next virtual event, the three concepts can’t exist without one another. The event, titled “Come Together to Understand Each Other’s Beliefs,” will aim to promote engaging conversation to help participants better understand several world religions.
The webinar, set for 1-3 p.m. Sunday, January 31, will feature presentations from high school students on Hinduism, Judaism, Zoroastrianism, Buddhism, Christianity, and Islam. There will be a question-and-answer session following the presentations to learn more about these often-undiscussed topics.
The event is being held in conjunction with World Religion Day, which is held January 17 this year. Participants are encouraged to talk to and listen to people from faiths different than their own to understand the basic tenets of other religions. The aim is to unite everyone, whatever their faith, by showing that there are common foundations to all religions.
