Event description

Description

Our December 7 regular program will be Dr. Harry Scott Coverston, son of 1950's LaBelle High School Vo Ag teacher and FFA Advisor Sam Coverston, on "Many Paths, One Destination". Evidence of religious observance is found in the earliest remains of human cultures. Human beings have often been described by scholars of religion as homo religious. A Hindu proverb observes that there are "many paths, one destination" among human religious traditions. We will discuss four of those paths: Judaism, Christianity, Islam, and Buddhism representing the four largest spiritual paths within the American populace today and how those traditions seek to answer humanity's enduring questions. This Free event is Open to the Public. Hope to see you there!

Dr. Coverston is fifth generation Floridian and a fifth generation educator. He has lived in every part of the state as well as the San Francisco Bay area and a summer in Washington, D. C. when he was a congressional intern. He specialized in Latin American Studies and spent a number of summers studying in Central and South America including being named a Fulbright Scholar to Brazil in 2011. Coverston is a non-practicing Florida attorney, an Episcopal priest and a permanent lecturer in religious studies, humanities and the philosophy of law at the University of Central Florida, Orlando. He has served as the designated scholar for the Florida Humanities Council in the Civic Reflections program, the Prime Time family reading program, the Community Discussions program, the Lake County Caribbean Humanities series and has delivered a wide range of public scholarship presentations on religion and culture across the state.
