CEDARVILLE — As a member of executive council at Cedarville University, Michael Wilt of Washington C.H. helped welcome Meghan Fischer to campus for a lecture about “Legal and Political Barriers to Reach the Unreached with the Gospel.”

Fischer is a legal counsel at the United Nations (UN) and has participated in several UN commissions, including the Commission for Social Development, the Commission on the Status of Women, the Commission on Population and Development and the Rio+20 Conference on Sustainable Development. She also works as a researcher with the Alliance for Defending Freedom International and has served as the research and policy specialist at the World Youth Alliance.

For Wilt, as part of the executive council, hosting these events is a way to encourage discussion of new ideas and help educate peers on important issues.

“Christians are called to love their neighbor, they’re called to engage society and they’re called to spread the gospel,” said Wilt. “This kind of discussion provides avenues for us to realize how we can further do that.”
