The 1st HWPL Intercontinental Online WARP OFFICE MEETING

 

A. OVERVIEW

HWPL WARP Office Dialogue of Scriptures meeting commences its fourth year. Based on a lot of discussions over the past four years, participating religious leaders have agreed on the standards of a trustworthy scripture. Now, based on these standards, the future WARP Offices will advance into an in-depth comparison of scriptures meeting. Therefore, HWPL will periodically open an intercontinental Online WARP Office meeting with participants from various WARP Offices around the world.

This Intercontinental WARP Office meeting will be held quarterly under the series named, ‘What Religious Texts Tell You.’ For the first quarter, the meeting will take place on 24 March, 2018 in two sessions (Session 1: 10:30AM – 12:30PM UTC / Session 2: 4:00PM – 6:00PM UTC).

 

B. OBJECTIVES

  1. To further develop the current dialogue of scriptures meetings, which are being actively held in each country, through the engagement of religious leaders from different countries and backgrounds. Also, through the real-time audience questions, a more in-depth discussion on the topic is anticipated.
