Series at St. Philip's explores 'roots' of religions | Arts & Culture
A fascinating and inspiring forum series entitled "Exploring the Roots of Religion" begins at St. Philip's In The Hills Episcopal Church on Sunday, September 8, at 9 a.m. in the La Paz room. This series of talks explores the roots of all religions — where they all came from and maybe why. A wide range of early human experience will be covered: sacred caves, mother goddesses, megaliths, the dead at Petra, Stonehenge, bulls at Knossos, ancient Ohio, Chaco Canyon, monasteries at Ajanta, the underground at Rome, and more. Prof. John Hale, University of Louisville, archaeologist, scholar and storyteller will lead the way via DVD presentations. Following each DVD is a discussion led by Brad Stroup.
The series is interesting since it does not attempt to identify individual religions, which occurred thousands of years later. It focuses on the earlier sense of presences that were unseen but suspected by primitive people, manifested in ruins that still exist today. The discussions are always stimulating and exploratory, never conclusive.
The public is cordially invited to attend. You may attend one, many, or all sessions. There is no charge.
St. Philip’s is located at 4440 N. Campbell Avenue at River Road. Ample parking is available in the north parking lot or under the solar parking structure on the east side. The La Paz room is off the central courtyard.
