Speakers at the year’s Lectureship will challenge attendees to live out its theme.
This year’s theme is Micah 6:8, which says, “Do justice, love kindness and walk humbly with your God.”
Dr. John Willis, professor of the graduate school of theology, and a class presenter, compared ACU’s mission to Lectureship’s theme.
“To do justice is to walk humbly with God. Our mission is to try to be servants,” Willis said.
Dr. Glenn Pemberton, chair of Bible, Missions and Ministry Department and a class presenter, agreed.
“ACU, for the past several years, has been very concerned with the idea of justice,” Pemberton said. “I think this particular theme speaks to that, and encourages ACU to continue along that path. It’s a big event for the university as well as for the Churches of Christ. People come together for an intensive time of teaching as well as worship and connecting with one another. The university, through Lectureship, really facilitates
Students also appreciate the campus’ yearly devotion to the event.
“As a freshman, it was a blessing in disguise because it attracts you next year to actually want to go and hear the speakers,” said Chris Herrington, sophomore pre-architecture and vocational missions major from Abilene.
In addition to Willis and Pemberton, many other lectures and worship presentations are planned. These include seven theme lecture speakers, 8 a.m. daily prayers at Jacob’s Dream, praise and worship time with music group Accappella and a wide variety of general classes.
This year’s Lectureship will conclude with Jeff Walling of Charlotte, N.C., presenting “Who is a God Like You? Micah 7:18-20” and an evening lecture given by the Students’ Association President Matt Worthington.
