Bruton Fall Lecture Series: The Reformation: Its Legacy Today

October 4, 11, 18 & 25
This year's Fall Lecture Series will address the historical events which occurred over 500 years ago.  Known as The Reformation, it reshaped Western Christianity. It will also include a forum of local clergy discussing where we are as Reformation-legacy Christians today.
    The program will consist of three sessions (October 4, 11 & 18) covering the 16th century Reformation events and a fourth session (October 25) which will be a panel discussion. The panel will focus on the question of where we are today as Christian communities living out Christ's prayer "that they may all be one" (Jn 17:21a).
    The session schedule and presenters are:
October 4
German Reformation
Rev’d Dr. James Cobb, Lutheran Pastor
October 11
Swiss Reformation
Rev’d Dr. James Cobb
October 18
English & Roman Catholic Reformations
Professor Alexander Angelov
Religious Studies Department, The College of William & Mary
October 25
Panel Discussion with Local Clergy
Moderated by Drs. Angelov and Cobb
    The talks will be geared to help us understand within each movement what was kept, what was added, what was removed, and what was modified. This should help us to understand the genesis of the current differences (and yet similarities) which we experience today in our Christian communities.  Reflection on these events will hopefully help us all see what is central among all the movements and, hence, the basis of our Christian unity.
    The talks/panel will begin at 7pm sharp and will be preceded by a light coffee/dessert get-together starting at 6:30pm.   Now that the dates have been set, think about inviting friends and neighbors.
