Upcoming CHAP Sessions (Community Hour at Perkins):

  • Tuesday, February 9, 11:30 AM to 12:20 PM in Prothro Room 100

    Join us for a conversation with Dr. Lydia Bean, the lead organizer for Faith in Texas(www.FaithinTX.org), a multiracial movement for social justice affiliated with the PICO National Network. Dr. Bean will talk with us about the joys and unique challenges of organizing faith communities in our social location, i.e. Dallas and Texas, and how theological studies and seminarians can contribute to “getting real about the sinful religious histories” of our cotexts. Students, faculty, and staff are invited to engage Dr. Bean in conversation over a free lunch.

    This event is co-sponsored by Dr. Susanne Scholz and her class OT6302 (Interpretation of the Old Testament) and the Black Seminarians Association. For more information please contact Dr. Susanne Scholz at sscholz@smu.edu.
