Many Religious Beliefs & Spiritual Faiths

Pam Poulson

Many Religious Beliefs and Spiritual Faiths in and around Hobart. Pam Poulson & Karen McCrone This course takes a multi-faith, multi-cultural approach to religious and spiritual beliefs and is interested in what is happening in our community. We have attracted a range of speakers. We are interested in key precepts or spiritual beliefs, and such things as when a particular church was established, the architecture of the buildings, and the way in which the institution sees itself as serving the community. The choice of topic is up to the speaker, speaking either as an individual or a representative of his/her particular faith. So far, these talks are shaping up to be both surprising, interesting and informative.

11:30 - 12:30

Peter Jones

This course is intended to provide a general introduction to Africa and its History. To many in the west, Africa has often seemed to be the lost continent, many of us simply don’t hear or know much about the place and its past. What we hear seems overwhelmingly negative. This course is to provide a fuller and more balanced view, and a greater appreciation and understanding of the complexity of Africa.
