15th Annual Dialogue and Friendship Dinner

March 5 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm

$75

“Working Together for a More Peaceful, Just, and Sustainable World.”
Keynote Speaker: Dr. Robert P. Sellers, Immediate past Chair of the Board of Trustees of the Parliament of the World’s Religions

Dr. Robert P. Sellers ​and his wife Janie were teachers in Indonesia for almost 25 years. More recently, he is Professor of Theology Emeritus at Hardin Simmons University in Texas. ​During his almost two decades at HSU, his classes emphasized cross-cultural living, global Christianity, Two-Thirds World and liberation theologies, world religions, and inter-religious dialogue. Frequently he took ​university or seminary students on Study Abroad trips, and he has taught or made presentations on six continents. With Muslim and Baptist partners, Rob has planned three national interfaith retreats. As a Baptist Christian, he is a member of the Interfaith Relations and Collaboration Table of the National Council of Churches and the Interfaith Relations Commission of the Baptist World Alliance. ​Because of his role with the Parliament of the World’s Religions, Dr. Sellers has participated in four international conferences with Muslim and Jewish partners that have resulted in the Marrakesh Declaration (Morocco, 2016) and the Alliance of Virtue Charter (United Arab Emirates, 2019). He frequently writes Opinion pieces for Baptist News Global and looks forward to completing some book projects in the coming months. Although still active in interfaith as well as Christian projects and activities, Rob and Janie enjoy having more time in retirement to spend with their two children and five grandchildren.Co-Sponsors: UIW Liturgical Outreach and Dialogue Institute of the SW
