North Shore religion news in brief

(Continued)

Congregation Shirat Hayam of the North Shore will host a celebration of 36 years of “Looking at the Law” with Neil Chayet on Saturday, Nov. 3, at 55 Atlantic Ave., Swampscott. Chayet, a Tufts University and Harvard Law School graduate, is best known for his nationally-syndicated radio program, “Looking at the Law.” Chayet will discuss how “Looking at the Law” began, what he’s learned from broadcasting and interacting with the public, and his views on the need to change the way people think about anger and conflict. The cost is $118 per person and includes an hors d’oeuvres reception at 7 p.m., priority seating, listing in program guide and dessert; or $36 for general admission/$40 at the door, which includes a dessert reception following the presentation. General admission is at 8 p.m. For more information or to order tickets, visit www.ShiratHayam.org.

Gordon College in Wenham launched a new Center for Faith and Inquiry that will oversee the college’s Center for Christian Studies and the annual student-led spring symposium. The center will also host panelists, visiting scholars, and guest lecturers through its Faith Seeking Understanding lecture series and Respectful Conversations initiatives while also facilitating various conferences and Oxford-style debates. The center’s mission is to promote first-order scholarship, reflection, creativity, and conversation, drawing from Christian intellectual and spiritual traditions, the various academic disciplines, and the wisdom found in societies and cultures at large.
