Samenvatting

In today's multicultural society we are increasingly likely to meet and become friends with people from different religious backgrounds, and to find ourselves attending an unfamiliar ceremony. When this happens, there can be few of us who know exactly what to expect, or are confident about how to behave. This book will help you: • to understand the backgrounds to the key festivals, ceremonies, and practices of the major world religions • to participate in the main holidays and festivals of the different religious calendars • to know what to expect and how to behave when invited to attend a Protestant, Catholic, Christian Orthodox, Jewish, Muslim, Hindu, Sikh, or Buddhist service • to join in the family celebrations of friends from different backgrounds Armed with this basic information, you will feel relaxed enough to enjoy the occasion–and perhaps inspired to discover more about the spiritual world view of another cultural tradition. It is very easy to potentially give offence when you are unfamiliar with another's faith tradition. So here's some quick Top Tips: 1. Don't take alcohol to a Muslim celebration 2. Never point your feet at the Murti (sacred deity) in a Hindu Temple 3. Be prepared to stand for up to three hours at an Orthodox Christian wedding 4. Don't take flowers to a Jewish funeral 5. Keep your head covered at all times inside a Sikh Gurdwara (Temple) 6. Flowers are welcome at a Catholic or Protestant funeral 7. Be prepared to be gender segregated at a Muslim wedding 8. Cover your arms, legs and chest, but not your head, at a Buddhist Temple
