This month’s Lunch & Learn features Dr. Robert A. Hunt, director of Global Theological Education at Perkins, speaking on Christian Leadership in a Pluralistic Society. “Leadership is more than getting out in front,” says Dr. Hunt. “It requires understanding how different cultures shape people’s values and goals.” Hunt’s current research relates to how religious identity is constructed in religiously plural settings, including issues related to inter-religious relations as well as methods of teaching inter-religious dialogue in a theological seminary setting.

Perkins School of Theology, which periodically hosts Lunch & Learn events for prospective students, also welcomes alumni, friends and any other guests who might be interested. While there is no charge to attend, reservations are required. For more information or to make a reservation for the October 28 Lunch & Learn, contact Rev.
