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 “Religion and Politics,” which is co-sponsored by the Boniuk Council and the Religion and Public Life Program. Panelists include Congressman Gene Green, former Mayor of Houston Annise Parker, the Rev. Troy Treash, the Rev. Joshua Mitchell, and the Rev. Sammie Dow. Dr. Craig Considine, Lecturer of Sociology at Rice University, will be moderating this conversation that will explore topics such as the separation of church and state, interfaith/intrafaith relations, immigration, abortion, Islamophobia, LGBT rights, religious extremism, and religious leaders’ impact on political discourses and perspectives.
It will take place this evening — Monday, April 10 — from 7:00 to 8:o0 p.m. in Sewall Hall, Room 301, on the Rice campus, which is located at 6100 Main Street. As always, if possible, please let them know that you will be attending by clicking this link.
