Peter Terry, “The Changeless Faith of God”: The Unity of Religion, Aug. 25

Sunday, August 25, 2 p.m. Eastern time

When Baha’is have presented what they call “the Baha’i principles”, they often give a short summary of three – the unity of God, the unity of religion and the unity of humanity.  The webinar will examine the unity of religion citing the words of Baha’u’llah, ‘Abdu’l-Baha and Shoghi Effendi, and will suggest some possibilities for interfaith dialogue related to this principle. It will include references to the essential (perennial) teachings of religion, the secondary (dispensational) teachings of religion, the false dogmas which obscure the original teachings of the Manifestations of God, and responses to claims to doctrinal exclusivism and revelational finality. Ideas presented by Christopher Buck, Soheil Bushru’i, Jena Khodadad, Liz Monteiro, John Randall, and Lyon Virostko will also be considered. 

Peter Terry studied education at the Universities of Maine and Massachusetts; Near Eastern Studies at the University of Chicago; classical music at Oberlin and San Francisco Conservatories; and he has been teaching, writing, and singing ever since.  He has spoken and sung in ABS and Irfan conferences and authored many papers and books.
