Perkins’ fall convocation provides a global perspective on faith

TV host and travel author Rick Steves leads the lineup of distinguished speakers for Perkins’ annual fall convocation, “Mission Quest: Finding Your Place in God’s World,” November 11-12 at Highland Park United Methodist Church and on the campus of SMU.
This annual event offers two days of lectures, workshops, dialogue with speakers and participants, Bible study and worship.
Rick Steves’ lecture, “Travel as a Spiritual Act,” will take place 7:30 p.m. to 9 p.m on Monday, November 11,in McFarlin Auditorium. Steves will explore how his lifetime of travels, along with his faith, shaped his politics and broadened his perspective. Steves will reflect on how his social activism has grown from his travels — and how travel can be a transformative experience for all Americans. He will sign books afterward from 9 to 9:30 p.m. Tickets for non-full-conference attendees are $15 per person; a printed receipt will be required for entry. No payments will be accepted at the door.
