BRIEF: Professor to discuss U.S. policy and Christianity

On March 29 Whitworth University Professor of Modern Languages Lindy Scott will discuss the war in Iraq from the point of view of Just War Theory, Latin American governments, and Latin American churches and organizations.

It's the third lecture in the university's 55th annual Great Decisions Lecture Series.

“I trust that the information presented will help the audience to rethink the relationship of Christianity and U.S. foreign policy today in a more interrelated world community,” Scott says.

The series features five speakers who focus on current political, cultural and economic subjects of interest to the international community.

The public is invited to attend the lectures free of charge. Scott's lecture will be at 7:30 p.m. in the Robinson Teaching Theatre in Weyerhaeuser Hall at Whitworth. For information call(509) 777-4937.
