David Barr, WSURA member, Professor of Religion emeritus

Join in this loosely structured discussion of religion, guided by the interests and concerns of those who attend. First session of April 17 will focus on how different religions view the purpose of life and the fate of the individual after death. In the second session of April 24, we will explore four ways of being religious: Devotion, Mysticism, Myth, and Harmony.  Along the way we will try to sort out some of the basic characteristics of religion and discuss the underlying logic of religious behavior—however strange it may sometimes seem.

  WSURA’s second series of workshops are planned to stimulate discussions and develop new skills. Members, spouses, friends and university employees are welcome. Enrollment is limited to ensure good interaction so send in your reservation early. Unless otherwise specified, all sessions will be held at the WSURA office, 210 Foundation Building which is behind the Wendy’s directly across from the main entrance to the WSU campus. Parking is plentiful and free with accessible parking is in the rear of the building. Coffee and snacks will be provided. Enroll with our office assistant, Emily Ross, at 775-2777 or wsura@wright.edu or with Marlene Bireley at mkbphd@aol.com. Please include your name, email, telephone number, and the workshop(s) that you wish to attend. Enrollment closes on April 11.
