The seventh annual Ronald Reagan Lecture, presented by The
Center for Vision & Values at Grove City College, will feature two Reagan
colleagues at 7 p.m., Feb. 5, in Ketler Auditorium of the Pew Fine Arts Center
on campus. Rev. John Boyles and Bob Morrison will join Grove City College’s
Executive Director of The Center for Vision & Values Dr. Paul Kengor in a
discussion on the faith and beliefs of former President Ronald Reagan. The
lecture is titled “God and Ronald Reagan, Revisited.” The event is free
and open to the public; registration is encouraged.
Boyles is pastor of the National Presbyterian Church in
Washington, D.C., the church that President Reagan joined shortly after his
inauguration. Boyles not only ministered to Reagan, but also was tasked by the
president with some critical missions relating to the Soviet Union and Cold
War. He also chaired the Reagan administration’s Advisory Committee on Ethical
Values. He later served as protestant chaplain at Bryn Mawr, Haverford and
Morrison, who served Reagan in the Department of Education,
worked closely with Secretary of Education Dr. Bill Bennett. Morrison continues
to work with Bennett to this day, assisting him in several books, including the
bestseller, America: the Last Best Hope. In 1991, Morrison joined the
staff of the Family Research Council. A Reagan biographer himself, Morrison has
paid special attention to Reagan’s faith story, including its relation to the
fall of communism.
The Center inaugurated the annual Ronald Reagan Lecture
featuring author and radio talk show personality Michael Reagan in 2007. Each
year, the event has provided eyewitness testimonials to the leadership style
and guiding principles of President Reagan.
