Assignment #2: M2 The Purpose of Religion

Instructions

Clifford Geertz taught that religion is an overriding system of symbols that serves two purposes.  It gives us a worldview – what is the world all about? And it gives us an ethos – what ought we to do?

Think about religion as practiced in America today.  Does it give a worldview? And does it give an ethos?  For example, think about Christianity, practiced by the majority of Americans. Do they receive a worldview they can accept from Christianity? Do they get guidance on how to act?

Assignment #3: M2 Finding the Sacred

Instructions

It has been said that the United States has lost its sense of the sacred.  Nothing is set aside, made special, or considered sacred.  People use to dress up to go to Church, go to the theatre, or fly on an airplane.  Today informal dress, or even shorts, is the norm.  Weddings, rather than following time honored rituals, consist of a creative ceremony written by the bride and groom.  Even a high school or college graduation is often marked by catcalls.

Answer the question whether you believe anything is sacred or holy in our contemporary society.  Is that a good or bad thing?

Your answer should be between 150 and 300 words. Assignment must be typed in MS Word, where you can check grammar and spelling. After completing your assignment in Word, save the document, then click on “Add a File” button to attach the file and submit your assignment.
