World Religion Expo set for April 3
The World Religion Expo is Sunday, April 3, from 2 to 5 p.m. at OCU. It will be held on the first floor of the Gold Star Building on campus.
The public is welcome; churches’ youth and adult groups from across the state especially are invited.
The free expo offers a wonderful opportunity in one place for people to learn about a variety of faith traditions.
Participants will tour stations that involve them in learning experiences about Protestants as well as Catholic, Jewish, Muslim, Baha’i, Buddhist, Dao, and other faith groups.
Every year is different. Several stations include foods that connect to religion or culture.
The expo is a good way to learn about the beliefs, worship traditions, and other interesting facts of each faith community. Students and other visitors are encouraged to ask questions.
Past activities have included opportunities to participate in Buddhist meditation, Tai Chi, dance, etc.
The World Religion Expo is sponsored by both "Introduction to Biblical Literature" and "Introduction to World Religion" classes, as a service-learning component for OCU students taking those courses.
