Harry Coverston Discusses Religion December 7

Dr. Harry Coverston, a designated scholar for the Florida Humanities Council in its Civic Reflections Program, will discuss the paths that four of the major religions in the United States take in their attempt to answer humanity's enduring questions in "Many Paths, One Destination". 

 Dr. Coverston, a fifth generation Floridian and fourth generation educator, quips that with great grandparents named "Reed" and "Wright" it was almost preordained that he end up in the classroom. A practicing Episcopal priest and lecturer in religious studies, the humanities, and the philosophy of law throughout Florida, Coverston describes himself as a recovering attorney as he spent a number of years as a Florida Public Defender before returning to his first love, the classroom. 

 He is no stranger to Southwest Florida as his father, the late Sam Coverston, was Vocational Agriculture teacher and FFA Advisor at LaBelle High School in the 1950s as well as serving on the LaBelle City Commission before returning to his family's ancestral hometown Bushnell. 

 The program will be held at LaBelle's Dallas B. Townsend Agricultural Center, 1085 Pratt Boulevard, LaBelle 3935, at 7:00 p.m. on Thursday, December 7. The public is welcome, and there is no admission charge. 

 Advance tickets available at are required since many attendees come from out of town. More information on this program is available at with the date and "Many Paths" listed in the search. Call (863)674-0034 and leave your name and telephone number for assistance in making reservations.
