Save the date for the next Lyons Lecture: April 21, 2018!
First United Methodist Church of Madison is pleased to welcome J. Kameron Carter to our 2018 Lyons Lecture. Dr. Carter is an Associate Professor of Theology, English, and African American Studies at Duke Divinity School. His most recent book, Race: A Theological Account, was released in 2008 and examines the role of Christian theology in the production of a racialized world.
The David P. Lyons Lecture in Theology was established to honor the memory and ministry of Rev. David Lyons. Each spring, a distinguished scholar is invited to share insight and understandings in the areas related to theology, biblical interpretation, religious history, and spirituality. Grounded in a deep and abiding faith, Rev. Lyons opened windows and doors for seeing and knowing God outside the usual human parameters defining God. Contributions to the Lyons Lecture or Endowment can be made here.
