GEORGETOWN, KY – Baptist Seminary of Kentucky is pleased to announce that the 6th Annual E. Glenn Hinson Lectures will be held on Monday, March 3, 2014, at Georgetown College’s Conference Center.
Dr. Willie Jennings, Associate Professor of Theology and Black Church Studies at Duke University Divinity School, will be the featured speaker.
Jennings, author of the 2011 American Academy of Religion award-winning book The Christian Imagination: Theology and the Origins of Race, will deliver two lectures on “The Risk of Christian Community.” These lectures will consider the risk the Spirit of God invites us to take in order to create Christian community, which continues the risk God has taken in the Son, Jesus Christ, and keeps taking with those who would follow Him.
The event begins at 10:30 a.m. and is open to the public at a cost of $16 per person ($8 for students), which includes lunch featuring musical inspiration led by Dr. Everett McCorvey. To register, visit the BSK Website or call the seminary office at 502-863-8300.
