​Center for Vision and Values to host Dr. Hollinger

9/16/2013

Grove City College and the Center for Vision & Values welcomes Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary President Dr. Dennis Hollinger to speak in the auditorium of the Pew Fine Arts Center at 7 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 26.

Hollinger will be the morning Chapel speaker and deliver a sermon entitled “Singing the Lord’s Song in a Foreign Land: The Challenge of Pluralism.” He will expand on his previous lecture with “Pluralism and Sex: A Christian Perspective,” in the evening lecture.

The lecture provides students and the larger College community an opportunity to hear from a first-rate social ethicist on an important topic. The evening lecture is free and open to the public.

“Dr. Hollinger’s expertise will offer thoughtful reflection on how Christians can think more carefully about the topic of human sexuality in a day when such discussions often generate more heat than light,” Professor of Religion and Humanities Dr. Paul Kemeny said.

Over the years, Hollinger has served in administrative, pastoral and seminary teaching ministries, including Vice Provost at Messiah College, Pastor of the Washington Community Fellowship on Capitol Hill in Washington, D.C., and Associate Professor of Church & Society at Alliance Theological Seminary in Nyack, New York. He is also a frequent speaker in churches, pastors’ conferences, seminaries, colleges and academic forums.

Since 2005, The Center for Vision & Values at Grove City College has become a leading forum for the study and application of freedom to economic, political, social, religious and scientific issues.
