Living in the City of Houston provides us with incredible opportunities to participate in cultural and intellectual events. Throughout the year, I’ll invite you and your friends and neighbors to join me in some of these activities that might either strengthen or challenge us as Christians.
The inaugural “On the Road with the Rector” event is a lecture on “Public Religion in America” by Peggy Edgell, Professor of Sociology at the University of Minnesota, which is sponsored by the Religion and Public Life Program at Rice University. It will take place tomorrow — Friday, January 30 — at 9:00 a.m. in the Kyle Morrow Room of the Fondren Library on the Rice campus, which is located at 6100 Main Street.
It will also include a moderated question and answer period and be followed by a brunch reception for those who are able to stay. Whenever food is involved, it’s always helpful to let them know that you will be attending. You can RSVP either by registering online or by sending an email to Hayley Hemstreet, Program Manager for the Religion and Public Life Program, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
