All posts must demonstrate critical thinking and effective written communication including proper spelling, grammar, professional language, and APA formatting of references and in-text citations. All posts must also be submitted no later than the last day of the unit week.

Discussion Prompts

Prompt #1

Take a day or a week in your present life and list all things tied to religion. These can include religious structures in your neighborhood, religious or spiritual study groups, saying prayers before meals, the pledge of allegiance, cultural festivities, social media messages, or tv shows and movies with religious connotations. What do you observe? Is it a picture of religious diversity? Do you or people in your social settings practice religious tolerance or religious inclusivity? Explain with specific examples.
