“An Open Dialogue on Religion,” an honest and frank discussion about religion, will be held at Frostburg State University on Tuesday Feb. 27, at 7 p.m. in room 237 of the Lewis J. Ort Library. This discussion is meant to explore all sides and opinions on religion: the black, white and gray areas. This event is part panel discussion, part open forum. Questions such as “Is religion relevant or irrelevant, helpful or harmful?” are on everyone’s minds. Current bestsellers such as Sam Harris’ The End of Faith take the negative view. What do you think? What is the role of religion in today’s society? Is there common ground?
Panelists include students Jeff Sellers and Ben Bernard, Protestant Chaplain the Rev. Larry Neumark, Catholic Chaplain Father Ed Hendricks and Pastor Rick Morley of St. John’s Episcopal Church. All interested students, faculty and staff are invited to attend and participate in a lively discussion.
This event, which is free an open to the public, is sponsored by the United Campus Ministry and the Catholic Campus Ministry. For more information, contact Neumark at (301) 687-7490.
