The Immaculate Heart Retreat Center will host its dinner series “Historical Connections” centered on the effects of the Reformation and the Catholic Church in America, and the Middle Eastern Conflict on Tuesday, Feb. 28 from 5:30-8:30 p.m.
Immaculate Heart Retreat Center, 6910 S. Ben Burr Road, “provides opportunities for spiritual growth to all people on their journey toward God in an atmosphere of prayer and reflection.”
The cost is $38 and includes a talk presented by Raja Tanas, professor and chair of the sociology department at Whitworth University. He will provide the Middle Eastern geography of turmoil between sons of Abraham, Ishmael and Isaac, and their descendants. Tanas will present part two of his talk in October.
Tanas received his bachelor’s and master’s degrees in sociology from the American University of Beruit, Lebanon, and his doctorate from Michigan State University. He began teaching at Whitworth in 1983, and researches Middle Eastern and Islamic studies.
