The Walla Walla University Center for Bible, Faith, and Mission—a branch of the WWU School of Theology—will present a three-part seminar Nov. 9–10 titled “Christians in a Polarized Public Square.”

The seminar will feature:

The CBFM is an outreach program of the WWU School of Theology that was established to explore ways of integrating biblical studies with concerns facing the church. The organization seeks to explore the understanding, relevance, and application of scripture in our world today through seminars at local churches by School of Theology faculty and invited guests, speaking appointments on campus and in local churches by School of Theology faculty, Good Word Sabbath School commentary (radio and online), on-campus lectures by noted Christian presenters, Midweek Meditation, and annual conferences.

The CBFM recognizes the need for all segments of the church—laity, clergy, scholars—to be part of the conversation and creative interchange surrounding the ongoing and increasingly urgent need for interdisciplinary study of issues that confront modern society as well as the church.

All presentations are free and open to the public. The Fine Arts Center auditorium is located at 200 S. College Ave., College Place, Wash. Visit the Center for Bible, Faith, and Mission website to learn more about the organization.
