Whitworth University will host the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.)’s third Conversation on Unity with Difference March 12-14 in the Seeley Mudd Chapel. The three-day event, organized and led by PC(USA) Moderator Neal Presa, will feature seven presentations on topics related to race, gender and religious identities.
Presentations will begin at 9 a.m. following introductions and an opening prayer by Whitworth President Beck A. Taylor. Each presentation will be followed with a Q&A from those in attendance and an online audience. Links for the live stream of the event will be made available later in the week. Online audience members can also follow the event on Twitter using the hashtag #UnityDiff.
Presa’s goal for the event will be to spark wide-ranging conversations throughout the PC(USA) and beyond. He views Whitworth is an ideal environment for this discussion. “Whitworth is a university that takes faith and learning seriously,” Presa says. “Because of its historical and renewed commitment to the Reformed tradition, it’s an ideal partner for the PC(USA) for this event.”
