Have you ever played Catch Phrase, taking turns trying to get the other people playing the game to say something (a specific person’s name, for example, or a familiar colloquial phrase) without using any of the words in the actual phrase itself? It’s a super fun game to play, interesting to see what words come to mind, and guaranteed to make everyone laugh, too.
We’re gonna play a mini round right now, and see if you can guess the umbrella subject of each of the sets of following words.
Krishna, reincarnation, dharma, India, samsara.
Israelites, Passover, bar mitzvah, bat mitzvah, rabbi, synagogue.
Siddhartha, eightfold path, dukkha, the triple jewel, right speech.
Jesus Christ, “Love one another,” crucifixion, the last supper, Christmas.
Mohammed, the five pillars, Qur’an, Mecca, pilgrimage.
Did you guess the subject matter of all five categories? One thing they all have in common is the fact that they are all world religions.
Set A refers to Hinduism, the third largest religion in the world.
Set B’s words all reference Judaism.
Set C? If you guessed Buddhism, you’re right!
Set D pertains to Christianity, the largest religion in the world.
And, finally, SET E, which points to Islam, the second largest world religion.
While not all faith tenets and beliefs are the same, the fact remains that religion plays an important role in the lives of billions of people around the world. The United States is home to a variety of religions and church groups that gather to worship according to how they believe. As a motorcoach company, one of the things we enjoy is having the opportunity to work with church groups. Sometimes there is a service project that requires transportation for the congregation, the church choir may need to get somewhere for a performance, or the youth may have an activity that requires traveling. Regardless of your religious affiliation or the activity your congregation is getting out to enjoy, you can call on us to help take care of all of your transportation needs!
