Sacred Space, Sacred Time”

Wednesday Zoom Discipleship Group 
  Begins January 13, 2021 @ 3:00 pm
 
Starting Wednesday, January 13th, Dr. Bill Garlington offers a course on the variety of cultures and practices of the various religions.  This class will consist of a series of twelve one-hour lectures in which we will examine the concepts of sacred space and sacred time, those spaces and times considered to transcend “earthly time” and are thus considered holy. 
 
The course will begin with examples from ancient Egypt, Greece and Rome, and in the following weeks examine similar phenomena from Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Hinduism and Buddhism. In the process, we will visit both in word and image (many pictures) a great variety of temples, shrines, cathedrals, mosques, and other holy sites as well as numerous festivals and celebrations ranging from the Egyptian Festival of Osiris to Christian Easter to the Hindu Kumbah Mela to the Islamic Hajj.
