I included this essay in this portfolio because it represents something in my education I am always striving to accomplish. My history of religion class focused heavily on Christian religions as that, and secularism, is the professors primary focus of study. I chose instead to focus on a little known religious community that has been growing in Canada. My teacher appreciated this as she was uniformed about the existence of these communities. By exploring this subject I helped her as well as myself in the pursuit of knowledge.
