S2: “The Promise of World Peace” through an Interfaith lens with Dr. David Oughton
August 4, 2021 @ 8:00 pm - 9:30 pm EDT
DRBI is proud to host Dr. David Oughton for a series of 90-minute discussions on an Interfaith approach to The Promise of World Peace. Participants will learn what the religions of the world teach about how to achieve lasting peace and the necessary conditions for a new system of world law and order. Session 1 (July 28) discusses the Baha’i principles in “The Promise of World Peace”. Session 2 (Aug 4) looks at world peace through an Interfaith lens and Session 3 (Aug 11) concludes with the religious support for the World Democratic Federation. Although participants are encouraged to take all three sessions, you can still benefit from attending one or two.
