Unit 3

In this area of study students focus on the interplay between religion and significant life experiences of members of religious traditions and religious denominations. Students consider the relationship between different types of significant life experiences and religious beliefs generally. They then undertake a detailed study of one particular significant life experience of a member of one selected religious tradition or religious denomination. The significant life experience may be a single event at a particular time or occur over an extended period. It has to be an experience that informed, reinforced or changed the person’s faith in and understanding of beliefs and their engagement with the expression of those beliefs. Students investigate what happens to an individual’s adherence to and understanding of the relevant religious beliefs and related expressions in the other aspects as a result of a significant life experience.
