How religion shapes life.

  1. Contact the faith community you plan to visit in advance to plan your visit. Ask if there is anything you should know such as a dress code, women
    not entering certain areas, taking off your shoes, covering your head, silence in certain areas, etc.
  2. Visivobserve the worship service (N.B. Roman Catholic, Eastern Orthodox, Protestant, Evangelical, and Pentecostal are all Christian traditions. If
    you practice or were raised in any Christian tradition, then you may not observe another Christian tradition for this assessment.)
  3. interview a knowledgeable, practicing member of the community about the service, and how religion shapes his/her life.

Write a 1000-1250 word (4-5 pages) reflection on your experience. Include the date and time you visited and the name, address, and telephone of the
site that you visited at the top of your paper.

  1. Write a thank you note to the person you interviewed and include a note in your paper indicating that you wrote a thank you note. This is part of your
    grade (honor system).
