"Unbending Ourselves: Ancient Christian Voices on Welcoming the Stranger"
Dr. Oden's lecture will focus on hospitality in early Christianity and its challenge for communities today. These ancient voices give a rich picture of the ways and reasons early Christians welcomed strangers, and help Christians today claim this practice as our heritage. This lecture is free and open to the public.
There will be a post-lecture dialogue with Dr. Oden at 12:00 p.m. in Room 304 of the East Building. Guests are invited to join us for this lunch conversation. There is a $10.00 cost and an RSVP is required. Please click this link to RSVP for lunch and submit your preference. A vegetarian option will be available.
The Wertsch Lecture is sponsored by Saint Paul School of Theology and is made possible through the will of Marcia Wertsch.
