Wertsch Lecture on the Work of the Church
November 19, 2013
Church of the Resurrection, Wesley Covenant Chapel
Dr. Amy Oden, Professor of Early Church History and Spirituality, Saint Paul at Oklahoma City University
"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.
