Since the begining of time and life on Earth people have asked questions about life and their place on Earth Wondered why evil and suffering exist how the world came into existence and how it might end Above all they have asked if there is a god or whether events just roll on forever without purpose or end The world as we have always known it is a devastating and frightening place Illness death and old age storms cyclones floods and droughts wars sufferage torture poverty and pain We are left only to feel helpless in the face of such disasters which is why most people devote themselves to faith in a phenomenon or power greater than human ability and understanding which can guide protect and give us hope in time of need This faith or belief is defined as RELIGION However it would be wrong to limit religion to be defined as just faith Religion is more then that its a way of life For years scholars have attempted to define the term only to be challeged by their peers who reluctantly point out how particular definitions fail to capture the totality of religion THEN WHAT IS RELIGION Even though we have trouble defining what religion really is without doubt everyone of us could truthfully say that we have experienced and shared the bewilderment of the religious A wedding ceremony a funeral a birth a disaster while watching the sun rise or set Strolling along the beach or standing in a place of worship During times of war of peace of fear and of joy in sickness and in health As we laugh or as we cryas we think as we dream as we eat or as we sleep Religion is a part of every aspect of every life whether we realise and appreciate it or not It is the foundation of all dreams or of every disappointment We use it
