And it seems that in recent years a growing number of people, including some young people, are more ready to go to a Buddhist temple to burn incense sticks or draw divination sticks, or to a Christian church to observe a religious service. Are they doing this just out of curiosity or for fun, or out of sincere belief? Have a discussion in a group of five or six and air your views concerning the causes of this social phenomenon. III. Post-Reading: （ III ） Oral activities
For your reference: You may want to mention the possible reasons as follows: —They do it just for fun, without special purpose. When they burn incense sticks or draw divination sticks, they are only following the crowd instead of knowing the deep meaning of religion. —They do it out of sincere religious belief. They believe religion has a great power which can guide them to remove hardship or one’s sin, with an aim to live a better life. Those people are very sure they can get help, comfort and strength from God. III. Post-Reading: （ III ） Oral activities
