The fourth in a series of dialogs on various aspects of religious faith will take place Sunday afternoon, June 7 from 2 to 5 pm at the Tsukuba Information Center (3F). The topic of this dialog is: "The Origin of Evil and Human Suffering and Each Faith Tradition's Response To It." Presentations from the standpoints of Buddhism, Christianity, Islam, and Hinduism are on the schedule. Other viewpoints, of course, are welcomed. Anyone interested in making a presentation from a different faith tradition should contact one of the organizers listed below.
The format will be that of a 10-20 minute talk by each presenter to be followed by questions and answers. This is not a debate, and so questions are to be limited to asking for clarification and understanding. Arguing debate style is discouraged, though, of course, some try to do that anyway. The purpose of this exercise is simply to try to understand the worldviews of other faith traditions from your own, in order to see where the similarities and differences lie. The formal session will be followed by a period of informal discussion around light refreshments. For further information, call Tariq at 59-0838 or Tim at 55-1907.
