ENRICHMENT OPPORTUNITIES

2003 Winifred E. Weter Faculty Award Lecture
2003 Winifred E. Weter Faculty Award Lecture: Friday, April 3, 7:30 p.m. Demaray Hall 150. Gregory Wolfe Writer-in-Residence, Publisher and Editor of Image: A Journal of the Arts and Religion "Christian Humanism: A Faith for All Seasons" In a divided culture, where progressives and conservatives are often embroiled in the intense ideological politics of the "culture wars," how can people of Christian faith find a balanced perspective on things? In his 2003 Weter Lecture, Gregory Wolfe speaks about the tradition of "Christian humanism" and the ways it offers a response to our deeply politicized culture. Drawing from ancient and modern sources, Wolfe will argue that in the history of Western civilization, humanism has always grown out of the rich soil of religious faith.
