As local religious leaders discussed varying beliefs of life after death Sunday afternoon during the Interfaith Symposium, a common idea was shared: There is life after death.

More than 100 community members listened to local representatives from Hinduism, Judaism, Christianity, Islam and Sikhism as they identified man’s inevitable conclusion, as well as each faith’s concepts of reward and punishment, heaven and hell, and the afterlife.
