We are celebrating INTERFAITH WEEK, WoW-style! Interfaith week is an annual celebration which highlights the importance of interfaith understanding and cooperation. People from all backgrounds have the opportunity to find out about different faiths and beliefs and to discuss, debate, learn and celebrate diversity.
Which of the university’s 10 schools produces the most analytical, brave, persuasive, intelligent Warriors???
To discover the answer to this question, I am delighted to release the Weekly WoW positions – for all students across the university – for THURSDAY 19th NOVEMBER, to be held in The Weston Auditorium at 6pm.
If you would like to defend any of these positions, please volunteer, using the ‘comments’ box below, and I will assign you a position at random (subject to availability):
1. That spirituality and religion are not the same thing
2. That it would be better for the human race if we all adhered to the same faith
3. That historical and current human conflicts and tragedies proves that God cannot exist
4. That faith and religious beliefs are not a choice, but a compulsion
5. That all faiths and religions are somewhat based on the concepts of karma, moral guilt and/or reincarnation
6. That love of money and consumerism is the new worldwide religion
You will need to consider the position, research it carefully and then defend it for one minute – then be subjected to questions from the audience. You will be marked on three criteria; (i) content – what you say initially and in response to questions; (b) presentation – how you say it, and how well you controlled the crowd; and (c) popularity – the public vote. The judge’s decision is final – and I will be your judge! N.B. If you volunteer, then you MUST attend and participate – no ‘cold feet’.
As usual, the weekly social in Club DeHavilland will take place straight afterwards from 7.30pm onwards.
See you on the 19th!
