The world is getting smaller yet at the same time the people seem to be growing apart. Therefore we want to give representatives of the Christian, Jewish, Hindu, Buddhist, and many other communities the opportunity to educate our community about the richness of their faith traditions. Exploring Faiths aims to bring people from different faith backgrounds together in harmony and overcome stereotypes between people of different religions.Introduction to Buddhism by Gareth Young is for anyone interested in exploring the practices and principles of Buddhism. Light refreshments will be served while Mr. Young discusses the basic concepts and understandings of the Buddhist tradition. Following the lecture will be a brief Q & A session. Gareth Young was drawn to spirituality in the late 1990's at the height of a successful twenty-year career in finance and M&A. He left the corporate world in 2006 to pursue both independent business livelihood and his spiritual path. In addition to becoming a successful entrepreneur, Mr. Young is one of the founding members of the Red Clay Sangha, an Atlanta Buddhist community, and is very involved in interfaith activities, currently serving as president of the Faith Alliance of Metro Atlanta. He is an author whose credits include two novels, "The Grace of Guilt," and "An Unexamined Life," a contribution to "Sacred Spaces," along with his weekly blog, Interfaith and Spirituality. This event is free and open to the public. Please RSVP. If you have any questions or concerns please contact Jennifer Gibbs at email@example.com. Or, you can call Atlantic Institute at (404) 254-4884.
