SAUMCM's How Religion Influences Politics Panel

  • Loftin Student Center (map)

Religion and Politics: How will your faith get you through the rough water?

On election day, November 8, do you think you might need a hug? Or, at least someone to talk to? It appears at least half of us are going to be unhappy, whatever the result in the presidential race. So, we’re bringing together some people of faith to help talk you through it.
As part of the Hot Potato series, sponsored by the Methodist Campus Ministry at San Antonio College, Texas Public Radio is joining in for an election-day discussion with area religious leaders. You are invited to listen to the perspectives of our panelists and then continue the discussion over a loaded-baked-potato lunch. Our experts will be a protestant, a Catholic, a Jew and an evangelical. This event begins at noon, Tuesday, November 8, in the Fiesta Room of SAC’s Loftin Student Center.
The audience will include students who regularly attend these Hot Potato events. However, we are also inviting the broader community to join in on this one. No one is going to tell you who to vote for. This is not about telling you if your choice is right or wrong. This discussion will be about how your faith should or could play a role in your election-day decisions.
Parking is free on the SAC campus and no permit is required. Street parking is also available in the surrounding area.
