Discussion To Consider Role Of Faith In Political Choices
A panel discussion on Friday, Oct. 1, will examine how faith influences our political decisions, particularly in an era of such stark political and religious polarization.
"Does Faith Have a Role in Informing Our Political Choices and If So, How?" will be the October meeting of the Finding God at Iowa lunch series. It begins at noon in River Room #1 in the Iowa Memorial Union. Admission is free; participants can bring their own lunch if they wish.
Panel members will include Cary Covington, professor of political science; Dottie Persson, head of the psychology library; and John-Mark Stensvaag, professor of law. The panelists will share ways in which their faith commitments shape their political decisions.
The Finding God at Iowa Noon Series is a program of the Geneva Campus Ministry at the University of Iowa. It is designed to complement the Geneva Lecture Series that brings speakers to campus to speak on a variety of topics from a Judeo-Christian perspective.
For further information, contact Jason Chen, director of Geneva Campus Ministry, at 319-341-0007 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
