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 Tuesday, February 19, 2013, at 7:00 p.m., in Hartness Pavilion. Our guest this spring is Rev. Mark Adams (’93), with Frontera de Cristo in Agua Prieta, Mexico, and co-author of Just Coffee: Caffeine with a Conscience. His lecture is titled “The Spiritual Discipline of Crossing Borders.” Note: this is a CLP-approved event at Furman.
