During the next couple of weeks there are some great events happening from coast to coast. In my last entry I shared about the ArtCyle that is happening in East Hollywood this coming Saturday. Today I had a few other happenings that you ought to know about.
N.T. Wright in Southern California
One of my favorite authors and theologians will be speaking at different places this week in the Los Angeles area. This coming Thursday evening, N.T. Wright, Bishop of Durham, will be speaking at Lake Avenue in Pasadena, CA. The doors will open at 6 p.m. with the lecture beginning at 7 p.m. The event is free and seating will be on a first-come-first-serve basis. My friend Kurt Fredrickson who heads up Fuller’s Doctor of Ministry program was able to get N.T. Wright to do an intensive week for doctoral students. I’m planning on going to this one.
