BYU-Idaho’s Interfaith Leadership Society will host a workshop on Wednesday at 6:30 p.m. in the Hyrum Manwaring Student Center in the Little Theater.

The workshop will be centered around the theme of the Bahá’i faith. Attendees can enjoy a movie with drinks and popcorn.

The workshop will be an introduction to the Bahá’i faith and will help students become familiar with the religion.

This semester, future workshops will offer opportunities for students to meet with members of the Bahá’i faith and learn how to ask questions about other religions.

“As the world gets more diverse and as it becomes more secular, it becomes more and more important that members of the church — and people going to school up here — know and understand people from other faiths and have respect for them,” said Rico Crosland, the society president.
