On Tuesday, senior Bible students took a field trip to visit a Hindu temple, a synagogue, a Serbian Orthodox cathedral, and a mosque. At each, we were given a tour, and religious leaders explained the basics of their belief system. These tours generated a host of questions and meaningful discussions.
This field trip was a part of the class’s study of worldviews and religions. During the past few weeks we have studied and discussed the major world religions, noting particularly the questions that religion asks and the answers it seeks to provide. Knowing how other people see the world can help us better understand why they act they way they do and how we can best tell them about Jesus, the answer to all our deepest needs.
