"Faith and the Common Good"

Faith and the common good will be discussed as part of the Berry College Lumen Lecture Series at 7 p.m. Wednesday (Jan. 29) in the Spruill Ballroom. 

The speaker is Greg Thompson who received his Ph.D. in the theology, ethics, and culture program at the University of Virginia. His dissertation, “An Experiment in Love: Martin Luther King and the Re-imagining of American Democracy,” explores King’s public theology of love. His research interests include theology, social theory, African-American intellectual history, and the American Civil Rights Movement. 

Thompson is a lead scholar on the Institute’s Vocations and Common Good project. He lives in Charlottesville, Va., where he serves as the executive director of New City Commons, a non-profit organization that seeks out and creates networks to aid in building a new cultural paradigm of faithful presence.

This event is free and open to the public. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. For more information, contact the Office of the Chaplain at (706) 236-2217.
