The Freshmen Cohort of the Taylor Honors Guild has just returned from a remarkable trip to Ireland. The students took a “Religion and Conflict” class which counts for Historic Christian Belief class credit. While in Ireland, they toured major landmarks, both natural and man-made, across the Irish landscape. They learned about the history of the church in Ireland and particularly highlighted the sectarian conflict between Protestants and Catholics. The group came away with a more deeply meaningful understanding of conflict in community and how the Christian narrative can promote peace and reconciliation.
