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 lecture on “Religion, Secularism, and the Politics of the Refugee Crisis” by Erin Wilson, Director of the Centre for Religion, Conflict and the Public Domain at the University of Groningen. This public lecture is sponsored by the Religion and Public Life Program at Rice University.
It will take place this week — Friday, November 18 — at 8:00 a.m. in the Humanities Building, Room 117, on the Rice campus, which is located at 6100 Main Street. As always, if possible, please let them know that you will be attending. You can RSVP by sending an email to Hayley Hemstreet, Program Manager for the Religion and Public Life Program, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
