TEMPE, Ariz. – The City of Tempe Diversity Office is offering a program entitled, “Who’s Your Neighbor?”- A Brown Bag Lecture Series on Cultural Awareness. This program is a series of presentations focused on learning about who lives, works, and plays in the Tempe community. While individuals may know about their own culture, traditions and lifestyles, some people may not know about or understand their neighbor’s cultures, traditions and lifestyles. The purpose of the lecture series is to create a greater understanding of each other in an effort to eliminate biases.
The East Valley is home to many Latter Day Saints. Our speaker, Elder David LeSueur, will present his program, “The Mormon Next Door.” He will discuss Mormon foundational beliefs, the differences and similarities to other Christian faiths, Joseph Smith’s role in the founding of the Church, the Book of Mormon, and the role of the missionaries. Elder LeSueur has served as a Stake President, Mission President, and currently serves as an Area Seventy for the Church. He has responsibility for public affairs in the greater Phoenix area.
The program will be presented on Wednesday, December 5th, from noon to 1:00 p.m. in the Tempe City Council Chambers, 31 E. 5th Street, Garden Level. Parking is available in the parking garage located at 177 E. Fifth St., immediately east of City Hall.
This program is offered free, and no registration is necessary. Participants are encouraged to bring a brown bag lunch, and dessert will be provided. For further information, call Ginny Belousek, Sr. Diversity Specialist, at 480/350-8979.
