Salon Luncheon Series: Religion and Local Traditions

Join us as the Sandy Spring Museum welcomes Susan Bond, professor of Religion at George Mason University and Montgomery College. Susan will serve as facilitator, introducing main forms of religions expression as embodied in several important religious traditions in the contemporary world. With deep roots in Quakerism, Susan's grandfather and great-grandmother were both Quaker ministers in Indiana; as a young woman she spent a year in India at Kaivalyadhama Institute for Yoga; she was baptized as an adult in the Episcopal Church; she has spent the later years of her life in the academy, with a special interest in Hebrew Bible and sacramental theology. These seemingly disparate personal religious experiences span many of the world religious traditions - discussion will focus on the many different religious traditions from the Sandy Spring and larger Montgomery County communities.
