Lecture to explore the role of churches in human rights and the global economic ‘meltdown’

During the current global “economic meltdown,” what is the role of today’s churches and other faith organizations in establishing an effective global economic order? And how do the United Nations and the issues of human rights connect to the process?

Those critical issues will be explored by British author Canon John S. Nurser, whose career has focused on human rights issues internationally, with an address for the O. Frederick Nolde Ecumenical Lectureship and Seminar on Human Rights. The lecture is at 11:30 am on Tuesday, December 2 in Benbow Hall of The Brossman Center at The Lutheran Theological Seminary at Philadelphia (LTSP), 7301 Germantown Avenue in the city’s Mt. Airy section. Nurser’s remarks are entitled “Human Rights Needs the Churches: The Gospel Needs Human Rights.” Admission is free and open to the public. The Nolde Lectureship and Seminar honors the work of the late LTSP professor O. Frederick Nolde. More information about Canon Nurser, O. Frederick Nolde and the Nolde Lectureship and Seminar, and directions are on the LTSP Web site –
