Fall Activism - Insight from Derek Sparks

We started work towards a Fall Event on Advocacy and Activism - toward peacemaking, with Derek Sparks. For a variety of great reasons, we are breaking up our work with Derek for now - and for a future opportunity into 2011!

While the following events are not "open to the public" as they are on-campus events at Southern Nazarene University. I am excited to report that Derek will be meeting with classes at SNU on September 29th and 30th. Events will include:

Reflecting on issues of human rights in areas of the world dominated by religious fundamentalist or extremists.

Discerning issues in southeast Asia, including discerning unique cultural and geographic features.

Other issues of multinational political and economic alliances, perhaps including problems with piracy.

Personal reflections on what it means to exist as a politician and Christian in the world today.

Presentation and conversation will be shaped by Student Questions in classes including World Religion, Physical Geography and Old Testament Theology.

Toward eupan!
