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 at Rice University entitled “Houston Congregations Engaged: Efforts to End Local Poverty,” which is sponsored by the Religion and Public Life Program with support from the Kinder Institute for Urban Research. The panelists include Rabbi Steve Gross, Houston Congregation for Reform Judaism; Pamela Prickett, Rice University; Ruth Lopez Turley, Rice University; and Rozella Haydee White, Mission Year Houston.
It will take place this week — Thursday, February 16 — from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m. in Sewall Hall, Room 309, 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.
