Cranberry plans diversity event for World Religion Day

January 13, 2021 Cranberry Local News

A song once asked, “What’s so funny ’bout peace, love and understanding?”

For the organizers of the Cranberry Area Diversity Network’s next virtual event, the three concepts can’t exist without each other.

The event, titled “Come Together to Understand Each Other’s Beliefs,” will aim to promote engaging conversation to help participants better understand several world religions.

The webinar is set for 1 to 3 p.m. Jan. 31. It will feature presentations from high school students on Hinduism, Judaism, Zoroastrianism, Buddhism, Christianity and Islam.

There will be a question-and-answer session following the presentations to learn more about often-undiscussed topics.

The event is being held in conjunction with World Religion Day on Sunday.

The aim is to unite everyone, regardless of faith, by showing that there are common foundations to all religions.
