The topic of immigration will be the center of discussion Sunday at Red River Unitarian Universalist Church in Denison. Human Rights Initiative of North Texas Executive Director Bill Holston will deliver the morning message during the 11:15 assembly.
Holston has provided pro bono legal representation for political and religious asylum applicants, representing clients from 21 countries in immigration court or before the Houston Asylum office. His remarks will trace the difficulties for immigrants to this country and will focus on some particular challenges in the current era. Since 2008, he has been an avid mentor to young lawyers in the Dallas Bar Association’s Transition to Law Committee.
Holston is a commentator for KERA and writes a column for D Magazine’s Front Burner, Law Man Walking.
Starting this Sunday the church’s 10 a.m. adult forum will begin a video discussion course, “How Jesus Became God.” This Great Courses series will explain the topic, “If Jesus had not been declared God, his followers would have remained a sect within Judaism, and the massive conversion of Gentiles, the Roman adoption of Christianity, and the subsequent unfolding of the Middle Ages, the Renaissance, the Reformation, and modernity would never have taken place. For that reason, the question of how Jesus became God is one of the most significant historical questions of Western civilization.” The class is open to everyone interested.
Red River Unitarian Universalist Church, 515 North Burnett Avenue, aspires to explore religious questions in a free atmosphere. For more information visit rruu.org.
