The Evangel blog has had its share of controversy, especially controversy over the divide between catholics and protestants. Let me add fuel to the fire by noting that Houston Baptist University will be hosting Archbishop Charles Chaput on the evening of March 1. We are hosting this event with the help of the John Paul II Center at the University of St. Thomas. To my knowledge, this is the first coordinated activity between the two universities. Chaput is well known for his Doubleday book Render Unto Caesar.
HBU president Robert Sloan will offer substantive remarks as part of his extended introduction for Archbishop Chaput. I think this event promises to be one of the most memorable happenings in the history of the university during our 50th year.
Go here to get details and to RSVP for the event. It’s free, but we need a good count.
