Rick Warren and Joel Osteen Are Part Of Oprah's Latest 'Lifeclass' !!

Oprah Winfrey's Life class program, just taped an episode in Houston that will feature Rick Warren and Joel Osteen.   As part of a six-week series of road stops to visit spiritual leaders and inspiring teachers, Oprah will launch a global discussion about self-worth struggles and dead ends with Pastor Joel Osteen of Houston's Lakewood Church and Pastor Rick Warren of The Purpose Driven Life fame, filming in the Hobby Center's Sarofim Hall.

The FAQ information sheet for the Houston taping also asks that ticketed audience members do not bring any gifts for Oprah as they will not be accepted.
