Religions of the World and the Golden Rule
Pinnacle Presbyterian Church | Chapel Library
25150 N. Pima Road, Scottsdale, AZ
We have a wonderful opportunity to learn about other faiths’ practice of the Golden Rule. Dr. Albert Celoza, Executive Director, Arizona Interfaith Movement, is leading an 8-week discovery of the core teachings of Asian religions and how these relate to Christian faith. Dr. Celoza will lead the class with textbooks by Michael Molloy, Experiencing the World’s Religions: Tradition, Challenge and Change. Dr. Celoza has taught political science, global studies and world religions for the past 30 years for Phoenix College, ASU and the Thunderbird School of Global Management. He’s traveled the world extensively and offers a global perspective on religion. We’re excited for you to join us for this unique opportunity with friends from all over the Arizona Valley!
You can also attend the class through Zoom .
Classes are every other Wednesday starting Jan. 10. Recordings of each class will be posted later that week.
