OCU Hosts World Religions Expo

The Wimberly School of Religion at Oklahoma City University will host the World Religions Expo from 2 to 5 p.m. Sunday. The event is free to the public and will be held in the Bishop W. Angie Smith Chapel on N.W. 23rd Street between Blackwelder and Kentucky avenues.

The expo invites participants to learn about different religions in an open house, come-and-go setting. Students from world religions and biblical literature classes, in partnership with community representatives from the religious groups, will give presentations at tables throughout the event area.

Participants will receive a “passport” to fill with stamps from each religion represented in the expo, which will include Islam, Buddhism, several denominations of Christianity, Conservative and Reform Judaism, Sikh and Native American, along with the Interfaith Alliance. The passport will be stamped as the participant visits each respective table presentation.

Many tables will include items and foods of significance to the religious groups. There will be demonstrations with optional participation in some religious practices.
