Introduction, Workshop 15: The 1800s—Five New Religions

In "Building Bridges," a Tapestry of Faith program

To live and let live, without clamour for distinction or recognition; to wait upon divine love; to write truth first on the tablet of one's own heart—this is the sanity and perfection of living. — Mary Baker Eddy, founder of Christian Science

This workshop introduces five faiths that emerged between 1830 and 1880.

It examines their historical context, looks at some of their characteristic elements, and appreciates the energy that led to their beginnings.

Because it is difficult to cover five religions in ninety minutes, you might consider extending this into two workshops by including the two Alternate Activities and extending the discussion time for other activities.
