A Teacher of the World
Modified on: August 21, 2018
When I first began offering classes in comparative religions at USC-Upstate, many years ago now, the students in my courses would talk constantly about another teacher, Dr. Dave Damrel. Associate Professor of Religion at USC-Upstate, Dr. Damrel was known to these students for three things above all:
- that he knew their names;
- that he was unfailingly kind; and
- that he began all of his world religions classes with a map test of the world.
Dave Damrel will speak with us this Sunday on “Radical Love in Islamic Mysticism”. A scholar of Sufism and the recipient of two Fullbright scholarships to teach comparative religions in Indonesia, Dave is a person of honed expertise and extraordinary travel, and of immense gentleness.
He is a teacher of the world, and he will pass through our door this Sunday. Please come to hear this wonderful man share with his. His students remember him; you will too.
