    ESSENTIAL INGREDIENTS:  
    EATING AND DRINKING SALVATION AND ITS STORY

    with the Rev. Dr. Lizette Larson-Miller

    Monday, September 11, 2017, 7 pm, Great Hall, Huron

    Ritual meals (or fasting from meals) are a part of every major religious system, but in Christianity the eating and drinking takes on additional depths of meaning in quite literally eating salvation. In light of recent controversies over the actual ingredients of the bread eaten and the wine drunk, why do the ingredients matter, what is the relationship between ingredients and the saving effect, and how can something physically consumed affect the salvation of the soul?

    The Annual Holy Cross Lecture is given each year by a member of faculty for the broader Huron community and general public.

    Limited free parking available in student lot, south of Huron's main building, off Western Road.  The parking gate should be up in this lot.  Do not park in the Pay & Display lot (without paying & displaying) or in the Guest Parking lot.

    THE PRACTICAL VALUE OF OLD TESTAMENT EXEGESIS

    Amos Ragan Kearns Professor of Bible & Practical Theology
    Duke University Divinity School

    About the Lecture
    Practical exegesis can be understood as reading the biblical story for the good of both church and society. Two practices of reading Scripture will be explored in this lecture: 1. African and North American Christians reading together as a learning community, in order to ask more adequate questions of the text and thus develop a richer understanding of truth; and 2. biblical interpretation as political ethics, with particular attention to how the Bible focuses on the daily economic lives of ordinary people, “the poor and vulnerable.”

    About Dr. Ellen F. Davis
    The author of 11 books and many articles, Dr. Davis' research interests focus on how biblical interpretation bears on the life of faith communities and their responses to urgent public issues, particularly the environmental crisis and interfaith relations.

    A lay Episcopalian, she is active as a theological consultant within the Anglican Communion. Since 2004, she has worked with the Episcopal Church of Sudan and South Sudan and elsewhere in East Africa to develop theological education, community health, and sustainable agriculture.  (further details)

    About the R. T Orr Lecture Series

    Since November 25, 1970, the R. T Orr Public Lecture series has been held each year in memory of Mr. Robinson T Orr, the son of a prominent London and London Township family of five generations, a successful businessman, an active layman in the Anglican Church, a staunch supporter of Huron University College, and a man of outstanding qualities.  Mr. Orr was a Lifetime Honorary Member of Huron's Corporation.

    Through the R. T Orr Lecture, supported out of the legacy left to Huron by Mr. Orr, it has been possible for the College to bring to London scholars of international reputation and outstanding theological educators.  Some past lecturers have been Premier Clyde K. Wells, Walter Wink, Michael Coogan, Adela Yarbro Collins, E. P. Sanders, John Dominic Crossan,Walter Brueggemann, and N.T. Wright.
