Religious denomination

A religious denomination is a subgroup within a religion that operates under a common name and identity. The term refers to the various Christian denominations, it is used to describe the four major branches of Judaism. Within Islam, it can refer to the branches or sects, as well as their various subdivisions such as sub-sects, schools of jurisprudence, schools of theology and religious movements; the world's largest religious denomination is Roman Catholicism. A Christian denomination is a generic term for a distinct religious body identified by traits such as a common name, structure and doctrine. Individual bodies, may use alternative terms to describe themselves, such as church or fellowship. Divisions between one group and another are defined by church authority. Groups of denominations sharing broadly similar beliefs and historical ties are known as branches of Christianity. In Hinduism, the major deity or philosophical belief identifies a denomination, which typically has distinct cultural and religious practices.

The major denominations include Shaivism, Shaktism and Smartism. Islam was divided into three major sects well known as Sunni, Khawarij and Shī‘ah. Nowadays, Sunnis constitute more than 85% of the overall Muslim population while the Shi'as are more than 12%. Today, many of the Shia sects are extinct; the major surviving Imamah-Muslim Sects are Nizari Ismailism, Alevism. The other existing groups include Zaydi Shi'a of Yemen whose population is nearly more than 0.5% of the world's Muslim population, Musta’li Ismaili, Ibadis from the Kharijites whose population has diminished to a level below 0.15%. On the other hand, new Muslim sects like African American Muslims, Ahmadi Muslims, non-denominational Muslims, Quranist Muslims and Wahhabis were independently developed. Jewish religious movements, sometimes called "denominations" or "branches", include different groups which have developed among Jews from ancient times. Today, the main division is between the Orthodox and Conservative lines, with several smaller movements alongside them.

This threefold denominational structure is present in the United States, while in Israel the fault lines are between the religious Orthodox and the non-religious. The movements differ in their views on various issues; these issues include the level of observance, the methodology for interpreting and understanding Jewish law, biblical authorship, textual criticism and the nature or role of the messiah. Across these movements there are marked differences in liturgy in the language in which services are conducted, with the more traditional movements emphasizing Hebrew; the sharpest theological division occurs between Orthodox and non-Orthodox Jews who adhere to other denominations, such that the non-Orthodox movements are sometimes referred to collectively as the "liberal denominations" or "progressive streams." The term "multi-denominational" may describe a religious event that includes several religious denominations from sometimes unrelated religious groups. Many civic events include religious portions led by representatives from several religious denominations to be as inclusive or representational as possible of the expected population or audience.

For example: the Sunday thanksgiving mass at Campamento Esperanza in Chile, where services were led by both a Roman Catholic priest and by an Evangelical preacher during the Chilean 2010 Copiapó mining accident. Chaplains - ordained clergy of any religion - are assigned to secular organizations to provide spiritual support to its members who may belong to any of many different religions or denominations. Many of these chaplains those serving with the military or other large secular organizations, are trained to minister to members of many different faiths faiths with opposing religious ideology from that of the chaplain's own faith. Military organizations that do not have large numbers of members from several individual smaller but related denominations will hold multi-denominational religious services generically called "Protestant" Sunday services, so minority Protestant denominations are not left out or unserved.

Tampa Bay was leading 3–0 with 9:12 left in the second period when half of the sports lights went out due to an interruption in power on the grid feeding electricity to the arena, followed by a failure of a computer-operated lighting system that allowed the sports lighting system to function with the circuit breakers.

PSE&G and Prudential Center electricians worked on the situation for 1 hour and 52 minutes but could not reboot the system. The game was suspended due to the lighting problem; the Devils, Tampa Bay Lightning and the NHL agreed to waive a rule prohibiting players from participating in an NHL-sanctioned event on three consecutive nights as per the NHL Collective Bargaining Agreement.
