All around the world, in all different cultures, it appears that humans are passionate about their spiritual beliefs.  It seems that we have a propensity to be religious–to have some kind of spiritual perspective and distinct practices that inform and shape how we live our lives. This first edition of Faith Matters: Spotlight features a discussion with a professor of world religions about the common questions that all religions answer:

Why are we here?

Who is humanity?

What is our problem and what are the solutions?

How are we to live here?

What is our ultimate destiny?
