Project Conversion: One Man, Twelve Faiths
The Beginning of a Journey
By Andrew Bowen
I didn’t always have a thing for religion. In fact, prior to 2011, my anti-theism was so intense that I wanted it wiped out permanently. But then, in October of 2010, I realized that with the help of teachings by Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Mahatma Gandhi, that the only way to end religious strife was to explore the world of faith from the inside out.
So I buried my anger and pride and planned an entire year, fully immersed in one religion per month. The initiative was called Project Conversion. I gave myself fully to the teachings, rituals, cultures, and beliefs of 12 faiths and philosophies. Little did I know just how much my world would change.
