Sunday, October 2
We could not be more thrilled to be launching the 2016/2017 Season of Rector’s Forums with our friend, colleague and interfaith ally — the amazing Edina Lekovic. Serving as the Public Affairs Consultant to MPAC (Muslim Public Affairs Council) Edina is a gifted communicator, frequently called to speak to the wide variety of issues confronting Muslim Americans. Among other honors and tributes she was recently named one of L.A.’s 10 Most Influential Women by Los Angeles Magazine.
In the LA Magazine interview, Edina described her role at MPAC as “helping to explain, decode and humanize the Muslim experience, especially in the state of such an onslaught of bad news coming from people who follow our faith.” On Sunday, October 2 at 10:15 a.m. we will ask her to do exactly that — specifically on the role of women in Islam — as we welcome her back to the Rector’s Forum.
For a look at “Edina in action” watch this CNN clip from a recent interview regarding the French “burkini” controversy. And then join us on October 2nd — in person or via live streaming — for a morning of both information and inspiration.
All Saints Church is located at 132 N. Euclid Avenue, Pasadena.
