Value of life posited as basis for fostering world vision

One of the challenges today is to find a vision of life that sustains the struggle to fashion a world in which personal integrity and social justice are honoured, says Norman King.

The Stephen Jarislowsky Chair in Religion and Conflict at Assumption University, he will propose a possible foundation in his free public lecture “The Sacredness and Dignity of the Human Person: Inter-religious and Inter-worldview Perspectives,” at 4:30 p.m. Thursday, November 27, in Iona College’s Hoffman Auditorium.

Dr. King suggests that the conviction of the worth of the human person—and all life—is a notion that can be shared by people of diverse backgrounds and convictions. His lecture is sponsored by the Centre for Religion and Culture and will be followed by refreshments and discussion.
