Wednesday

6:30 PM: Zoom opens for chat time | 6:45 PM: WNL Program begins

Join us via ZOOM only from January 12 - February 23 for our series "Exploring the Religions of the World." Dr. Jim Goodnow recently moved to Franklin and joined our church, and he has taught at schools across the world. The seven presentations on World Religions give an introductory overview of the origins, tenets and practices of the globe's major non-Christian faith traditions including Hinduism, Buddhism, Jainism, Confucianism, Daoism, Shinto, Judaism, Islam and selected others. You are encouraged to read the corresponding book to this study The Religions Book: Big Ideas Simply Explained available on Amazon. Jim has also provided a thorough handout to study along with the lesson. The zoom link will be uploaded to our website weekly.
