Students learn by finding out for themselves …

IMAG1573 (1)VRG religion students visited the Ulrika Eleonora Church in October.

Students expressed that they found the visit to be beneficial. Many commented that it is nice to be able to ask questions to IMAG1564people who are actually practicing what we are studying about in the classroom.

That is what makes this study visit important.  Students can see that behind each religion, there are individuals with just as many dreams and questions as the students themselves have.  And, we cannot simply accept the image of religion as it is projected in media as true.  We have to find out for ourselves.

på svenska:

Besöket var väldigt givande, flera av eleverna kommentera de att det var skönt att få ställa sina frågor till en person som verkligen praktiserar det som vi går igenom i klassrummet. Och det är just det som gör dessa besök så viktiga. Att de får se att bakom varje religion så finns det en individ med precis lika många drömmar och frågor som eleverna har och att man inte kan låta bilden som projiceras i media vara talande för alla världens troende.
