Explore something different

Aravis pointed me to Different Religions Week, which takes place from Friday, July 15 through Friday, July 22. The website says that the idea stems from the fact that "[r]eligiously motivated violence is at a troubling level in the world today — 9/11 and the Israeli-Palestinian conflict come first to mind. Different Religions Week aims to take a few small steps away from the widespread ignorance and intolerance that fuels such tragedy."

There are links to information about several "main" religions (including Baha'i, Earth-Based and Zoroastrianism) so you can know something more about them and learn where the nearest place of worship is. I would recommend checking out your local library's copy of How to Be a Perfect Stranger, so you know what to expect and how to act once you go.

What a great idea!
