Dr. Seidel Attends Templeton Workshop

In July, Dr. Dietrich Seidel not only attended the Templeton Workshop for Science and Religion in Oxford, England but was able to meet personally with Sir John Templeton, the foundation's founder. Dr. Seidel reports that Sir John expressed some interest in the Unification Movement and had several questions. Each year, the foundation awards the Templeton Prize for Progress in Religion. (For further information on Sir John Templeton, see the June '98 issue of World and I.)

To date, the Templeton Foundation has provided $12,000 for the development of Dr. Seidel's Science and Religion course at UTS and in August, it was announced that one of Dr. Seidel's students had won fourth place in a Templeton essay contest (see following report.)
