Pilgrimage and Fasting in Christianity

Page history last edited by PBworks 12 years, 10 months ago

Christianity, like many of the world's religions, has several different groups within it. Most of these different denominations share similar major beliefs. Their differences occur for several reasons, such as orthodoxy, location, or politics.

For homework, watch the two videos that are linked to below, and complete the assignments that follow. You may do all the written work on the same page.
