On Tuesday, October 24th our World Religions class (10th grade) toured the following four houses of worship and were introduced to leaders within each of those religious communities: St. Mary's Church, Burlington; Temple Har Zion, Mt. Holly; Al Nasr Mosque, Willingboro; Baps Shri Swaminarayan Mandir, Robbinsville.
The following are a few comments from the 10th grade participants:
“I have a new appreciation for other religions and how far women have come.I observed how different each place of worship is and yet some of them had the same rituals and spiritual practices.”--Ariana Clue, of Willingboro, NJ
“People were very kind and open. I found that a lot of religions have grey areas in every aspect, especially Islam and Judaism.It was very educational.” --Allison Canivan, of Burlington, NJ
“The Muslim Mosque was really plain in decoration. I was surprised by that. They are very hospitable and the rules are actually not that strict.”--Haley Chen, of Nanjinj, Jiangsu, China
“I thought that it was very enjoyable to learn about new religions.I observed that most religions are peaceful and are not as black and white as I had thought...”--Justin Pormilli, of Cranbury, NJ
