Areas of Focus

We're currently exploring several areas of focus, addressing questions such as:

How do people discover and come to a better understanding of spiritual realities? Is the fact that people disagree so much about religion a good thing or a bad thing? Why do people think about the relationship between science and religion in so many different ways, and what factors shape these various approaches? What are the real benefits of religious faith and practice?
