Annual Lecture

Each year, we host nationally or internationally significant theologians, public servants, thinkers, and writers through our Peggy & Ed Good Lecture.  This series has enabled the Center to share resources, not only with students, faculty, and staff, but also with alumni, friends, and the Greenville community.  We consider this kind of partnership with the community at large as part of Furman’s history and heritage.

Previous Peggy & Ed Good Lectures have been given by teachers, scholars, theologians, musicians, artists, activists, and many others, such as Parker Palmer, Barbara Brown Taylor, Sue Monk Kidd, Marcus Borg, Diana Eck, Kyle Matthews, and David Gushee.

The next lecture is Thursday, February 27, 2014, at 7:00 p.m., in Hartness Pavilion.  Our guest this spring is Rev. Deb Richardson-Moore, with Triune Mercy Center in Greenville, SC.  She is author of The Weight of Mercy: A Novice Pastor on the City Streets.  Her lecture is titled “Our Triune God: Closer Than You Might Think.”  Note: this is a CLP-approved event at Furman.
