    A Look at Islam

    This 10-session series will serve as an introduction to Islam, or if some prefer, Islam 101.

    The purpose of our sessions will be providing answers to three main questions:

    1. What are the Islamic sources of knowledge?
    2.  What is the Islamic worldview revealed in these sources?
    3. What are the means by which this worldview is translated and what are the manifestations of this translation in reality?

    While offering answers to these questions we will touch upon and connect to scholarly fields that are frequently associated with the study of Islam.

    Almost everyone in Canada has an immigration story in their family’s past.  This is the story of my great-grandparents and grandparents, leaving England to start new lives in Manitoba in the 1880’s and then Alberta before it became a province.  Join them for the sea voyage, the railway trip on a colonist car, and the trials and tribulations of homesteading - twice - before settling in Calgary in 1917.  Then we’ll learn a bit about life in northeast Calgary through the Armistice, Spanish Flu, Depression and Second World War.

    Presenter: Doug Coats
