Judith Wahrman, Ph.D., professor of education and the College of Education’s director of outreach and partnership, will be the next presenter for the University of Findlay Department of Religious Studies’ spring lecture series.
Wahrman’s free, public lecture will focus on Judaism. It will take place on Monday, April 3 at 8 p.m. in Ritz Auditorium.
This lecture series provides opportunities for leaders and practitioners of different faiths to expound upon their personal connections with their religion, and to illustrate their respective religion’s interaction with American culture.
Speakers are addressing existential issues, transcendence, personal identity, meaning and vocation, spiritual development among the faithful, and how they think discrimination and prejudices against their religion can be mitigated.
Some of the questions that speakers have been asked to answer include:
- What constitutes my existence?
- What is the true reality?
- How is vocation related to my spirituality?
- How should I serve my neighbors and community?
- What are some notable and interesting differences between your devotional practice and other religions?
The series’ final spring semester presenter will be Gregg Mott, instructor of English as an international language, whose April 10 lecture at Winebrenner Theological Seminary will focus on Quakers.
