Cron Lecture Speaker Discusses Faith in the News

Award-winning author, speaker and scholar Dr. Diana Butler Bass will deliver this year’s Cron Lecture on religious/spiritual trends and what difference they make in our lives and communities.

Butler Bass will discuss “Faith in the News” Wednesday, Oct. 4 at 7:30 p.m. at the Newman Center, 90 Broad St., Plattsburgh. In this lecture, she will explore the four biggest faith stories: Marginalization/fear in Muslim communities; the decline of Evangelical Christians’ and their continued support of Trump; the Roman Catholic sisters’ witness to justice issues; and the re-emergence of a vibrant religious left. 

Butler Bass is a contributing editor for Sojourners Magazine, a writer for The Huffington Post and The Washington Post, an adviser of the National Museum of American Religion project in Washington, D.C., and the author of nine books, including the best-selling “Christianity for the Rest of Us: How the Neighborhood Church is Transforming the Faith.”

The Cron Lecture Series is sponsored by the Plattsburgh Protestant Campus Ministry.

The 2017 lecture is free and open to the public.
