Tempe's Dayspring United Methodist Church, 1365 E. Elliot Road, is hosting "a civil dialog" on one of the most controversial issues in America - immigration.
The educational program, from 9:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Oct. 15, will feature Margie Ault-Duell of Borderlinks of Tucson, an organization offering experiential education for churches and educational institutions. Ault-Duell will speak on "Immigrants: Who are they and why do they come?"
The Rev. Jim Perdue, a missionary from the Desert Southwest Conference of the United Methodist Church, will present the second topic: "Myths & Realities - Biblical and Moral Perspectives." And, Clark Olson, professor at Arizona State University's Hugh Downs School of Human Communication, will handle audience participation, questions and answers during an afternoon "Civil Dialogue."
The immigration forum is open to the public and includes an optional $7 catered lunch. There is no cost for those not having lunch, but registration is required for everyone. For more information, contact the Rev. Jane Baker at firstname.lastname@example.org.
