Class overview:

This 7-week class, taught by Richard Lombard, will help you better understand your neighbor, co-worker, client, friend, or family member who may be from a country and/or may hold to a belief system that is different from yours.  This class explains the concept of a worldview and explores six of the world's major belief systems - Atheism, Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, and Judaism.

As we explore worldviews, we will address the following questions: 

  • Are all religions basically the same? 
  • Do all religions believe in the same God, but refer to him by different names? 
  • Do all religions lead to God?

This class is co-sponsored by WorldviewU and Meadow Park Church of God.  People of all faiths are welcome to participate in this class.

January 5 – Introduction to worldviews and the concept of truth
