The Dillard Forum to feature Charles Marsh

On Sunday and Monday, October 19-20, The Dillard Forum of Trinity United Methodist Church in Richmond, Virginia, will feature Charles Marsh. This year’s forum is entitled, “Dietrich Bonhoeffer: Explorations of His Life, Thought, and Promise.” Four lectures by Marsh comprise the event, with “The Sources of Bonhoeffer’s Worldly Faith” at 9:30 a.m. and “Bonhoeffer’s Spiritual Awakening” at 7 p.m. on Sunday. Monday’s program includes a lunch coupled with a lecture and an informal discussion on “Bonhoeffer’s Protest against the Nazi Churches” at 12 p.m. and a final lecture focusing on “Bonhoeffer’s Final Questions and Christian Witness in the 21st Century” at 7 p.m. Each individual session has allotted time for a question and answer period.

The seminar events are free and open to the public; however, the Sunday lunch costs $7 and requires that participants reserve their seat by October 17.
