  • Rodney and Lorna Sawatsky Visiting Scholar Lecture: “Psalms in a Difficult Time: Rhythms of Lament and Doxology” with Don E Saliers
    Date:
    February 15, 2018
    Time: 7:30 pm
    Location: Conrad Grebel University College
    Address: 140 Westmount Road North, Waterloo, ON
    Description: We live in a world of permanent tensions and contrasts:  poverty and wealth, terror and beauty, political strife, warfare and hope for peace.  How shall we sing, pray and live in such times?   The ancient psalms are, as they have been in every age, profound sources of insight and spirituality in response to this question.  By tracing the images and rhythms of lament and doxology in the Psalter, we encounter the mystery of God and the full stretch of humanity. How can Christians pray the Psalms with Jesus today?

  • Bechtel Lecture in Anabaptist-Mennonite Studies: “One Generation Away: Martyrs Mirror and the Survival of Anabaptist Christianity” with David Weaver-Zercher
    Date:
    March 1, 2018
    Time:
    7:30 pm
    Location: Conrad Grebel University College
    Address:
    140 Westmount Road North, Waterloo, ON N2L 3G6
    Description: Anabaptists have long worried that they won’t succeed in passing their faith to the next generation. Why then regale their teenagers with stories that correlate Anabaptist faith with social shame and physical torture? Thieleman van Braght’s seventeenth-century martyrology, Martyrs Mirror (originally called The Bloody Theatre) has been put to many uses over the years, but few have been as common as the spiritual formation and education of young adults. This lecture will explore the longstanding nexus between Martyrs Mirror and Anabaptist youth culture in both traditional and more assimilated Anabaptist communities.
