Respect for religious practices discussed at CCU

A special Insights from World Religions titled "Beyond Colorblindness: Into the Faith Divide" takes place on Monday, April 1, at 4:30 p.m. on the Coastal Carolina University campus in Lackey Chapel. The event is free, and the public is invited.

Issac Bailey, a columnist with the Sun News, and Bobby Wilkes, a retired minister with the First Presbyterian Church, will explore the question: is it possible to continue worshipping together and respecting those with whom you have disagreements on fundamental issues about your faith?

In a recent column, Bailey spoke on his own experiences of "attending churches where the views I hold on certain issues are not even welcome."

"I'll share a bit of the struggles I've had over the past few years," he says, "Wilkes will provide the wisdom, based upon the decades he's spent in the ministry and watching the world change around the church." Bailey encourages the public to not only attend, but also participate in this event.

"We want to hear from you, members of the public, about your beliefs, about where they come from, about how you determine when a line has been crossed."

Lackey Chapel is located at 105 University Blvd. in Conway.
