When thinking about religion, it’s important to note that since the dawn of humanity, people have sought a connection with forces greater than their own. The mysteries and power of the natural world and the wonder of life making more of itself engendered creation stories across civilizations. A desire to touch the infinite and to ponder the unknowable led the human heart and mind to religion—and brought people together for this common purpose.

Since time immemorial, the teachers, sages, and prophets of religious faith have set into place ideas about how to live ethically and how to treat others. Religions have long provided a code of ethics within their respective cultures and societies—the earliest laws.

Today, religion is still important in global societies and in our country because communities of worship can provide not only great opportunities for spiritual and emotional growth but also a network of support to people in all phases of their lives. This sense of belonging is essential for human wellbeing.
