Forum meets each Sunday from September through May in Kaseman Hall, with the exception of the first Sunday of each month. On the first Sunday, the Cathedral Breakfast is sponsored by one of the ministries in the Cathedral. Forum begins at about 10:10 am on Sunday morning (enough time for folks from the 9:00 am liturgy to get a cup of coffee and find a place to sit).

Forum Resumes in September.

The current series is considering the topic: “What, exactly, is religion? And why does one religious tradition often differ so markedly from another, even when you might not expect it to? Why, for example, are the Abrahamic faiths of Judaism, Christianity, and Islam—despite their common source—often so different? And what kinds of factors separate the beliefs of a Hindu or Buddhist not only from those held by Jews, Christians, or Muslims, or by each other, but also from many who identify themselves as fellow Hindus or Buddhists?” We are using the Great Courses, video class, Comparative Religion, which looks at the place of world religions in relation with each other, certainly an important investigation in a world struggling with religious intolerance and polarization. The Dean’s Forum meets in Kaseman Hall, beginning after the 9:00 service. (about 10:10AM) Come and be part of this enlightening class and discussion.
