lecture series Begins Friday

— A new topical, weekend lecture series titled “FaithLife Connections” will begin Friday at Southern Hills Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), 3207 S Boulevard. The event continues Sept. 29.

Created by Phillips Theological Seminary, the workshops series, featuring the seminary's faculty members, will bring topics of relevance and interest to local communities for understanding and conversation. The first presenter in the Edmond area will be Mindy McGarrah Sharp, Ph.D. Her discussion topic will be “Sustainable Faith: Communities of Care in a World Under Stress.”

Seminary faculty with topics of expertise and interest will rotate to participating congregations so seven topics will be discussed over the three-year program. Other Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) congregations hosting the program include Yale Avenue Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) in Tulsa.

Within the three-year span, a congregation will host a weekend event twice a year, once in the fall and once in the spring.
