Asking the Big Questions campus/community discussion group explores faith and spirituality

Posted by Judy Korn on Monday, Oct. 18, 2010


The monthly Asking the Big Questions campus/community discussion series, sponsored by the University of Minnesota, Morris Rodney A. Briggs Library, will explore faith and spirituality during the 2010–11 academic year. The next gathering is on Tuesday, October 26, 2010, at 7 p.m. in the library’s McGinnis Room on the Morris campus.

The discussion topic for the group will be “What is Wicca?” Carol Ford, author of The Northlands Winter Greenhouse Manual, owner of Garden Goddess Enterprises, and Division of Science and Math executive office and administrative specialist, will facilitate the conversation that explores the earth-based religion. Optional background readings, Wicca and What is Wicca?, are available through Briggs Library’s e-reserve system under "library."

“There is something very stimulating about sharing thoughts and ideas,” reflects Peter Bremer, reference librarian at Briggs Library. “We do this every month in Asking the Big Questions. There aren’t any right or wrong answers. The act of discussing is our reason for coming together as a group. Participants learn as much from each other as from the readings.”

Refreshments will be served at 6:30 p.m. Contact Bremer at 320-589-6173 with questions. Everyone is invited to attend.
