The World's Religions: A Free Public Lecture Series with Dr. David Oughton
This series, offered via Zoom through the Interfaith Partnership of Greater St. Louis, is a free, non-credit opportunity for anyone interested in learning about the history, beliefs, and practices of the major religions of the world. It will be led by Dr. David Oughton, President of the Board of IPSTL and retired professor of the world's religions at Saint Louis University. This fifteen-part series will be held on Monday evenings. Participants are welcome to come every week, or to attend the weeks that pique their interest most. Course readings and materials will be sent out to participants before each week's meeting. For more information, contact Dr. Oughton at oughton@hotmail.com. Those who participate in any or all of the sessions are encouraged to donate to Interfaith Partnership (www.interfaithstl.org/donate).

In response to high demand, we have decided to offer this course through a webinar format to accommodate more students. This means that only the video of Dr. Oughton and any panelists will be visible on the screen; you will not see your own video feed, nor that of your classmates. However, you will be able to ask questions in the chat.
