The Daniel Boone Regional Library is offering a five-session series on world religions.
The first session, focused on Hinduism, will take place at 7 p.m. Wednesday.
The series is present by Hickman High School classical ideas and world religions teacher Jonathan McFarland along with Sahba Jalali, who works in Columbia to promote justice and religious amity. Each session will also feature a practitioner or scholar from each faith.
Attendees will learn about how various religions are present in the Mid-Missouri community, with each religion placed in a historical context.
According to the event description, the series focuses on diversity of beliefs, teachings and practices and how these things shape and are shaped by culture.
The series is a part of an effort in Boone County toward promoting inclusivity. Many of these programs are also open to Callawegians because the Callaway County Public Library is a part of the DBRL system.

Future sessions will focus on Buddhism on March 10, Judaism on March 25, Islam on April 7 and Bah' on April 21.
