Interfaith Conversation Series: Buddhism and Judaism

Come and learn more about the world’s great religions this month here at BAUUC! Our Speaker and Events Team will be presenting a series of guest speakers from diverse religious communities here in the Clear Lake area on Wednesday nights at 7:00pm. Each speaker will be a respected leader in their community and they will discuss the fundamental beliefs, practices, rituals, holidays and history of their faith as well as information on their tradition’s teachings about human living, afterlife, holidays and what makes their faith unique from others. This series will include two presentations on Buddhism on Wednesdays November 6 and November 13 and two presentations on Judaism on Wednesdays November 20 and December 4. We will not have a program on November 27 because of the Thanksgiving holiday. Sessions on Christianity are scheduled for Wednesdays December 11 and December 18. All these programs are free and open to the public. Everyone is encouraged to come and join us as we learn together about our neighbors of other faiths.
