In our third colloquium we will utilize previous seminars information and discussions to critique how personal belief and spirituality relate to fellowship and religion.
Specifically, we will reflect on how well personal views of faith, fit, within group identity and religious fellowship.
How does personal belief reconcile with group spirit? What does religion require for its future survival? Is Zoroastrianism a global vision or an ethnic preserve?
These are some of the issues which we will discuss.
Beginning this session, we will also begin to focus on "the minutia"...direct issues within contemporary and historic Zoroastrianism. For example, the issue of conversion. However, we will continue to interrogate big-themes, since these are important for understanding how multiple viewpoints are formulated (e.g. what one believes the purpose of religion is or what religion is for, determines their view of conversion).
