The Rev. Dr. John M. Buchanan Will Give the 28th Annual Knippa Interfaith / Ecumenical Lecture

Aired on Tuesday, January 20th.

On Sunday the 25th -- at Grace Lutheran Church (2331 East 5th Place) in Tulsa -- the 28th Annual Knippa Interfaith / Ecumenical Lecture will be given. It is free to the public, it starts at 7pm, and it will feature the Rev. Dr. John M. Buchanan, Pastor Emeritus of the Fourth Presbyterian Church of Chicago (where he served for more than 25 years). Buchanan is also the editor and publisher of The Christian Century magazine; he has received numerous doctorates and honors for his scholarship, and he's written three books. Buchanan is our guest on ST, and he speaks in detail about the lecture he'll be giving here in Tulsa soon. It's a speech with a very Donald Rumsfeldian title: "Known Knowns, Known Unknowns, and Unknown Unknowns: Prelude to Hopeful Interfaith Relationships." Also on today's program, our commentator Barry Friedman highlights a few recent developments in his ongoing (and Herculean?) effort to help his elderly father relocate to the Tulsa area. And, rightly enough, "Pennies from Hell" is the title of Friedman's personal essay.

Rich Fisher passed through KWGS about thirty years ago, and just never left. Today, he is the general manager of Public Radio Tulsa, and the host of KWGS’s public affairs program, StudioTulsa, which celebrated its twentieth anniversary in August 2012 . As host of StudioTulsa, Rich has conducted roughly four thousand long-form interviews with local, national, and international figures in the arts, humanities, sciences, and government. Very few interviews have gone smoothly. Despite this, he has been honored for his work by several organizations including the Governor's Arts Award for Media by the State Arts Council, a Harwelden Award from the Arts & Humanities Council of Tulsa, and was named one of the “99 Great Things About Oklahoma” in 2000 by Oklahoma Today magazine.
