"Windows on the World" Presentations Engage Important Issues this Fall

St. Davids, PA: Eastern University's distinctive lecture series, Windows on the World, will begin again this Friday, September 6 with a presentation by Don Golden, missiologist and executive director of Red Letter Christians.  These free weekly presentations are open to the public and provide an opportunity to gather together as a community in thoughtful consideration of very important issues, deepening our common pursuit of faith, reason and justice. 

Sponsored by the Office of the Provost, Windows on the World is intended to stimulate personal involvement in and knowledge of some of the crucial and controversial issues facing Christians today. Through these forums, the campus community is exposed to Christian thinkers and activists who model our motto of “the whole gospel for the whole world.”

Windows on the World presentations take place on Friday mornings at 10 a.m. in the McInnis Auditorium on Eastern University's St. Davids campus unless otherwise indicated.
