Jim Wallis to speak on campus
Jim Wallis, executive director of Sojourners, will speak in Lehman Auditorium, Feb. 21, 2006 at 7 p.m. In 1995, Wallis was instrumental in forming Call to Renewal, a national federation of churches, denominations and faith-based organizations from across the theological and political spectrum working to overcome poverty.

Wallis was invited by the Student Lecture Series Committee (SLSC), a student-initiated, student-run group founded in 2004 to enhance the intellectual climate of EMU by bringing speakers to campus who will challenge
students and give them another perspective.

The Student Lecture Series is a student-initiated endeavor to bring well- known speakers on campus to address socially relevant issues. Sponsorship for this event comes in part from Student Government Association, The Lilly Project and the Shenandoah Anabaptist Science Society.

For more information, e-mail studentlectureseries@emu.edu. The lecture is open to everyone, and the committee suggests a $5 donation at the door.
