"The Preachers chiefly shall take heed that they teach nothing in their preaching, which they would have the people religiously to observe and believe, but that which is agreeable to the Doctrine of the Old Testament and the New, and that which the Catholick Fathers and Ancient Bishops have gathered out of that Doctrine." A proposed canon of Elizabeth I, 1571

Vacation Bible School at St. Vincent's Cathedral

Tonight's class on "Christianity and Buddhism" was well attended (the vacant chairs are those of the dean, who had to leave for a hospital visitation, and my father--the photographer here). Discussion was lively. This year I am teaching the adult class at St. Vincent's Vacation Bible School, where we are studying "Christianity and Eastern Religions." Last night we covered Hinduism. Tomorrow we move on to Taoism. Posted by Hello

We cover the doctrine and practices of these Eastern religions. Then we look at essential differences between them and classical Christianity. Several of Peter Kreeft's books are helpful in the comparative phase, btw.
