Franklin First Presbyterian Church is launching a series of lectures open to the public, the first featuring a prominent Vanderbilt scholar and professor on Wednesday, September 28, then Wednesday, October 5 at 6:45 p.m. each day.
Melissa Snarr, a professor at Vanderbilt University Divinity School, will kick off the series by presenting a program called Faith & Politics: Four Approaches to Christian Discipleship.
Snarr, Ph.D., is the E. Rhodes and Leona B. Carpenter Professor and Associate Professor of Ethics and Society. She is also director of the Doctor of Ministry program.
“The church’s outreach committee is launching a program of lectures addressing issues of concern within the church community,” outreach committee member Jim Mahurin said in an email. “We invite what we believe to be very talented speakers to address topics of interest across the community.”
The talks, part of First Presbyterian’s Wednesday Night Live program, are free and open to the public. The next ones will be announced later.
The evening also includes a family-style dinner, at a cost of $10 per person. Visit the church’s website to RSVP.
