Houston’s Faith Elders: Social Justice, Social Change in the Presence of the Divine
Thursday, December 15, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm$10
What would it look like if leaders from various faiths joined forces to further social justice and change in the community? The Rothko Chapel is offering a glimpse into the power of that type of effort.
At 7 p.m. on Thursday, Dec. 15, the Chapel is hosting “Houston’s Faith Elders: Social Justice, Social Change in the Presence of the Divine,” a conversation with Rabbi Samuel Karff, Rev. William Lawson and Archbishop Joseph Fiorenza. The event will be moderated by award winning local journalist Melanie Lawson.
The three clergy have worked together on social justice issues in Houston for decades. The event will offer a window into their interfaith efforts – and the leaders will explain how these programs have influenced their own personal spirituality and ministry.
The conversation will be followed by a reception. There is a suggested donation of $10 to attend. The Chapel is located at 3900 Yupon St.
