As part of Union’s new “Faculty on the Road” initiative, we are excited to announce that on Friday, October 12, and Saturday, October 13, Fuller Seminary’s William E. Pannell Center for African American Church Studies will host a public symposium on “Black Public Theology and Race in America” at which Union’s own Dr. Lisa Thompson will be speaking during the Friday morning session and during the Saturday afternoon all speaker panel.
A native of Cedar Grove, N.C., Dr. Thompson, Union’s Assistant Professor of Homiletics, is an ordained Baptist minister and has served in university and parish ministry settings. She holds a Doctor of Philosophy and a Master of Arts in Religion from Vanderbilt University and a Master of Divinity from Fuller Theological Seminary. She previously held posts as the Assistant Professor of Homiletics at Pittsburgh Theological Seminary in Pittsburgh, Pa., and as a Lilly Faculty Fellow at McCormick Theological Seminary in Chicago.
Early bird access for both days of the conference is available for $10 through September 10, after which the cost for both days will be $20. Single day access for either Friday or Saturday admission is $10. Please note that the Saturday afternoon all speaker panel from 3-4 p.m. is free to the public with no ticket required.
