When I was asked to be the director of the WorldView series at Trinity, I was excited and honored. WorldView was a new program—only a year old—and the idea behind it was one that I endorse and applaud.
As a student at Trinity in the 1960s, I and my classmates were always talking about how Christians can have an impact on the world in which they live. Being a music major at that time, I had a strong appreciation for the arts. Later, as an elected official, I saw the importance of being involved in the world to make a difference in the community.
WorldView combines both of those passions for me. As a series of lectures, films, music, and art that is open -- without charge! -- to both the College community and the community at-large, it is our opportunity to learn from leaders in our world, to experience the joy that comes from the arts, and to do it all at Trinity with our neighbors and friends. The hope is that our faith is enhanced, our community relationships are strengthened, and our students and attendees are challenged by what they see and hear.
It is my personal hope that someday, through the WorldView series, Trinity will be seen as “the” place to come for growth and inspiration.
