One of the professors at Providence Seminary (Tim Perry // his blog) is doing a lecture series at St. Margaret’s Church and the first of the lectures is available online. I had told him that I would spread the word, but put off doing so until I had listened to it myself (because how could I promote it without listening to it). However, time is passing and I haven’t had the chance to listen yet, so I’ll mention it now.
The series is called “Taking Atheism to Church”. I’ll simply quote my friend Joel, who has evidently listened to it already:
His first lecture focuses on the ways in which religion is increasingly permeating the public sphere. It is a good talk, very interesting and thought-provoking. It makes me look forward to the rest of his lectures. Please listen to it when you have an hour to spare.
Do have a listen to the first lecture. Throw it on your iPod to listen during your commute, or what have you. I plan in listening to it soon.
