The church hosted a two-part series on world religions in the fall of 2016--the second time we've done this. The first session, on Tuesday, October 25, featured speaker Mr. Rashed Ferook from the Islamic Resource Group in Minneapolis, who spoke last year and was back by popular demand! His discussion provided an overview of Islam, plus information on the religion's history, practices, and beliefs.
In part 2, on Tuesday, November 29, David Locketz, Senior Rabbi at Bet Shalom synagogue in Minnetonka, spoke to us about Judaism, in particular in comparing Reformed with Orthodox Judaism. He was a most interesting speaker, and the evening was very informative and enjoyable.
