We welcome Dr. Raja Tanas as our speaker during morning worship. On Saturday evening, Dr. Tanas gave a community lecture on IT’S DEAD: THE TWO-STATE SOLUTION TO THE PALESTINIAN-ISRAELI CONFLICT in which he reviewed the events since WWI that led to the creation of Israel in Palestine, the emergence of the PLO, the Oslo Accords, and the seemingly imminent path to a one-state solution.
During Sunday worship Dr. Tanas will give us a religious perspective on the issues entitled THE DESCENDANTS OF ABRAHAM THROUGH ARAB-CHRISTIAN EYES.
Dr. Raja S. Tanas, Professor Emeritus of Sociology at Whitworth University, has taught courses in the areas of Middle Eastern, Arab, and Islamic studies. Dr. Tanas received the Burlington Northern Teaching Excellence Award in 1989, Whitworth’s Diversity Award in 2011 and was voted the institution’s Most Influential Professor in 2010.
Worship in Christ’s presence begins as the first persons arrive and settle into the silence. Doors are opened around 9:00 a.m. Community worship will begin around 10:00 a.m.
October 28 Anya Lawrence will present a musical program containing the I AM verses from the Gospel of John, accompanied by the music of William Sydeman, a well-known and celebrated contemporary composer of classical and sacred music. We think you will find it awe-inspiring and greatly uplifting.
