Forum Topic: Elections and the Common Good
September 12, 2012
DALLAS (SMU) – Perkins School of Theology will host a Texas Faith Public Forum, “Elections and the Common Good,” Thursday, September 27, 2012, from 7-8:30 pm in the Great Hall of Elizabeth Perkins Prothro Hall.
This event will be moderated by Dallas Morning News editorial columnist William McKenzie and senior political writer Wayne Slater of the newspaper's Texas Faith blog, which brings together religious leaders and thinkers from diverse faith traditions to discuss contemporary issues and concerns.
Perkins School of Theology Dean William B. Lawrence – one of the forum panelists – notes that this event is scheduled less than one week before the first presidential debate, and provides the opportunity to ask, “How is the 2012 election helping to define the national good – and how can the campaigns do that better?”
In addition to Dean Lawrence, panelists include the following leaders:
1. Katie Sherrod, an independent writer/producer and Episcopalian activist, Fort Worth
2. George Mason, senior pastor of Wilshire Baptist Church, Dallas
3. Dwight McKissic, senior sastor of Cornerstone Baptist, Arlington
4. Gordon K. Wright, North Texas leader of The Church of Jesus Christ of LDS
5. Mike Ghouse, president of the Foundation for Pluralism, Dallas
The public is invited to this event, and there is no charge to attend. Prothro Hall is located on the SMU campus at 5901 Bishop Boulevard in Dallas. Free parking in the Meadows Museum garage, located across the street from Prothro Hall, can be accessed from Bishop Boulevard by turning right on Schlegel Street. Guests must use the left lane of the entryway to the parking garage to avoid a charge for parking. A map of the SMU campus is available at smu.edu/maps.
