PHPC Talk Series Topic for Spring 2015: Faith and the Media

The spring 2015 PHPC Talk Series will continue its Thursday evening dinner and speaker series, beginning on February 12 at 6:30 p.m.

The spring speakers will engage in the topic of faith and the media, exploring the relationship between religious institutions and conversation in the public square:

What role do religious institutions play in shaping the conversation in the public square?

What role do journalists play as a critique on faith?

How has the interaction between faith and the media changed?

What role does new technology affect the way that we engage and respond to issues?

The PHPC Talk Series promotes connecting our Christian faith with our community life, inviting important thinkers and public leaders to discuss some of the most pressing civic and ethical issues facing the city of Dallas and our nation.

A season pass for all three evenings is $25; individual tickets are $10.
