He and Katherine have been married since 1976 and have raised four respectful sons and live in Vancouver, Washington.

Richard Twiss will be speaking on “Dancing Our Prayers” at a North Park Theological Seminary student chapel in ISAACSON CHAPEL.

At 7pm in Hamming Hall, Andrea Smith will be presenting on the topic: “The Revolution Will Not Be Funded: Dealing with the Non-profit Industrial Complex”  If you haven’t had a chance to hear Andrea, you’re in for a real treat.  She’ll raise some real tough challenges.  Andrea teaches at Media and Cultural Studies at UC Riverside.
