Please contact Dr. Rod Werline (rawerline@barton.edu) if you have any questions about this email.
Dear Church,
As many of you know, this year marks 500 years of the Protestant Reformation. The Allan R. Sharp Religion in Life Lecture at Barton College will celebrate this historic anniversary with a lecture on Martin Luther on Monday, October 30, 7:00 pm, in the newly refurbished Howard Chapel. This year’s lecturer is Dr. Bill Leonard, the James and Marilyn Dunn Professor of Baptist Studies and Professor of Church History at Wake Forest University School of Divinity. His lecture will be titled: “Luther and the Reformation: Captive to the Word.”
This will be a wonderful educational opportunity for all of our churches and also a way to honor and celebrate our Protestant heritage. This event is free and open to everyone. A poster for the lecture is attached. We hope that you will join us that evening!
