New! World Religion Series: Ethical Insights of the World’s Major Religions
5 sessions, 10 hours 

 
 
This course is a journey that reflects on the ethical systems of Judaism, Christianity, Islam, indigenous traditions, and Taoism. We will look at general viewpoints and how each tradition’s core values affect behavior and priorities in the contemporary world. We’ll study issues of identity, authority, personal and family life, equality, right and wrong, conflict, violence, and global issues which impact everyone. This is a nonsectarian, respectful, and brief overview of the variety and shared moral foundations of these five world traditions.

Instructor: Rev. Dr. Tim Dissmeyer is retired clergy and current adjunct faculty in world religions, with 10 years of field experience with the Ecumenical Institute: Chicago, 20 years of parish service in Maryland and Washington, D.C. and 15 years  of involvement in interfaith dialogue. His lively, open-minded and inquisitive approach to religion and spirituality continues to inspire ILR students.
