Note to our audience: If any of our (interfaith) members care to answer these questions in our comment box, it would give you practice. Do not do the research for the student. Keep your answers as brief as possible. I would correct anything i deem incorrect. Go for it. They are simple enough for most of you,  i see no harm in making an attempt towards them. These are common questions asked of us. It would help you greatly in ‘Utah.’

Good luck
