The Marshall Lecture Series

     Each year on the first Sunday in October, Brenthaven Church will host the Marshall Lecture Series, an educational event funded in memory of Jim and Jean Marshall. This series will feature challenging speakers from all faiths and backgrounds steeped in the Reformed tradition.

     This year's lecturer will be Dr. Robin Jensen, the Luce Chancellor's Professor of the History of Christian Art and Worship at Vanderbilt University, where she teaches courses in both the Department of the History of Art and the Divinity School. Most of her research and writing focus on the interpretation of early Christian art and architecture in light of its theological significance and practical contexts. She has written numerous books, her most recent being Living Water: Images, Symbols, and Settings of Early Christian Baptism (Brill, 2011), and Baptismal Imagery in Early Christianity (Baker Academic, 2012). Her current project, The Cross: History, Art, and Controversy, is due to be published by Harvard University Press in 2015.

     Dr. Jensen will begin her first lecture around 12:45 pm. The second lecture will begin around 2:00 pm.

     Lunch will be served, and we ask that reservations be made. The lectures are supported by a gift to the church and therefore are free and open to the public. Share the news and make plans tojoin us.
