11/1o Hot Topic 6:00 p.m. - 7:30 p.m.
Christianity in the 21st Century
Honest questions about faith:
Is faith more about what we believe or
more about behaving differently?
(Putting spiritual truths into action.)
Some people around the globe have "hi-jacked"
religion for their own purposes.
How is religion used as a
force for harmony
in the world?
Can "compassion" and the "golden rule
" helps us to strengthen
our own faith, and enable us to partner
with people of other faiths
in seeking solutions to some of the
worlds greatest problems?
We'll watch an engaging 20 min. video

speaker. Dr. Armstrong is one of the
world's foremost commentators
on religious affairs, and has initiated
a world movement called
"The Charter for Compassion"
