Senior Fest 2013 was held on Wednesday, February 27, 2013
Acclaimed author and historian REV. DR. PAUL MAIER is returning to SENIOR FEST at Concordia University Irvine. He will present seminars on two topics:
Islam and Christianity: For almost fourteen centuries, the Crescent has opposed the Cross. In this seminar, the world’s two largest religions are contrasted in terms of founders, scriptures, history, beliefs, and practices.
Christianity and the Competition: With all world religions claiming to teach the truth, what makes Christianity any different? The credentials of our faith are compared with those of religions in the Far East, the Middle East, and the West. No contest!
You may also choose from one of these four workshop sessions:
- The Ever Changing World of Taxes – presented by Keith Gunther of the MGM Financial Group in Sante Fe Springs.
