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 next “On the Road with the Rector” event is a panel discussion entitled “Islam and Public Life: Addressing Stigmas and Stereotypes,” sponsored by the Religion and Public Life Program at Rice University with support from Rice University’s Boniuk Institute for the Study and Advancement of Religious Tolerance. Pamela Prickett, a Religion and Public Life Program postdoctoral fellow, will moderate this conversation among three panelists: Imam Wazir Ali, director of the Mercy Community Center and resident Imam of the Houston Masjid of Al-Islam and Masjid Al-Qur’an; Craig Considine, lecturer in sociology at Rice University; and M. Hasna Maznavi, founder and president of the Women’s Mosque of America.
