“Jazzing Hellwards”: The Painful History of White Protestant Church Segregation and What It Means Today

June 28 – Marta Crilly, Historian and Archivist

From segregated seating in the 1840s to the Memphis Kneeel-Ins of the 1960s, America’s white congregations have a long and painful history of working to promote segregation in church pews. Examining the long tradition of segregationist theology, polity, and culture in the white church sheds light on the current racial situation in American churches, and helps us to understand why 11:00 on Sunday morning is still the most segregated hour for American Christians. This lecture delves into the pro-slavery and pro-segregation theology accepted in many white churches in the 19th and 20th century and how that theology manifested in local church practice.

The True Object of Human Longing: Re-embracing Dominion and Trust

by Ben Keyes

delivered on May 24, 2019

Why is it that we often find ourselves longing for adventure and security, for new challenges and for the comfort of what is known? While individuals differ greatly in how they experience and act on these two desires, we all seem to have elements of both in our hearts. We will explore these twin desires to ‘set out’ and to ‘come home’ as clues to our God-designed nature.  Is it naïve to expect the fulfillment of these two seemingly contradictory longings?

Space, Place, and Grace: Musings on the Meaning of Home

 

Mary Frances Giles

March 22, 2019

These days we are surrounded by conflicting messages of “home”. An advertisement for a furniture store might be immediately followed by a report on the refugee crisis. Americans are more transient than ever, yet we are obsessed with home improvement shows. This lecture will use the Biblical narrative as a lens to examine what it means to build a home, both in the world and with God.

What is the heart and can it be ‘altared’?

(given March 8, 2019)

 

Sarah Chestnut

From the muscle-pump that keeps blood moving through the body, to a symbol of romantic love, the heart is understood (and misunderstood) in a variety of ways.  How did the biblical authors understand the heart and what might it mean for Christ to “dwell” in our hearts–and change them?
