March 11: Mithraism with Jeffry Shelton
The ancient Roman Mystery Cult Mithraism was a religion practiced in the Roman Empire from the 1st to 3nd centuries A.D. chiefly by soldiers. Although some of the ritual practices of the cult are known, the beliefs of the cult were and are largely mysterious. Clues to what Mithraists believed have been found in the iconography of their temples. Jeff will inform us of what is presently believed about Mithraism.
March 25: Letting Go: What it is and What it isn't with Bob Gehrke
While this is a very broad subject, we will focus on its spiritual and social justice aspects. For those who would like an introduction to this very broad topic on which many articles have been written, Bob has selected the following by Dr. Lawrence Wilson, “Letting Go.”
The article can be found at http://drlwilson.com/Articles/letting_go.htm
All are welcome to join in Religious Exploration, regardless of religious belief or church membership. RE sessions cover discussions of various short articles of topics covering religion, spirituality, or social justice. All RE sessions are on the second and fourth Sundays. Come to the church at 4 pm to join us for stimulating conversation and new learning experiences. Articles, whenever possible, will be distributed prior to the session via email or discussion.
