[Non-YCLA Event] 2013 Stern Lecture at Saint Matthew’s: “Horrendous Evils and the Goodness of Go
   
Featuring the Reverend Dr. Marilyn McCord Adams, who was the Horace Tracy Pitkin Professor of Histoical Theology at Yale University.

The 2013 Stern Lecture at Saint Matthew’s presents “Horrendous Evils and the Goodness of God” with The Reverend Dr. Marilyn McCord Adams

St. Matthew's Stern Lecturer for 2013 will be The Rev. Dr. Marilyn McCord Adams. Dr. Adams is one of the world’s leading philosophical theologians, and a priest of the Episcopal Church. During her academic career she has been Regius Professor of Divinity at Oxford University, the Horace Tracy Pitkin Professor of Historical Theology at Yale University, and Professor of Philosophy at UCLA.

Dr. Adams’ Stern Lecture will be entitled “Horrendous Evils and the Goodness of God.” She will be addressing the classical theological and spiritual questions: How can a good and all-powerful God preside over a world such as ours that abounds in evil and suffering? How can we be in relationship with God when suffering is so much a part of our lives, and what does God intend to do about it?

The Lecture schedule is as follows:

Friday, August 16 at 7:30 pm

“God as Horror-Perpetrator” 

Saturday, August 17 at 9:00 am:
“God as Horror-Participant” and “God as Horror-Defeater”


A luncheon on the Parish Courtyard will follow Saturday’s presentation. Admission is free but reservations are required for the luncheon.

Please RSVP to sternlecture@stmatthews.com. Dr. Adams will also preach at the 8:00 and 10:00 am services on Sunday, August 18.


Dr. Adams brings a unique combination of intellectual rigor, spiritual depth and pastoral compassion to this most challenging topic. She is a brilliant lecturer, preacher and spiritual director, and we are thrilled to welcome her to St. Matthew’s for the 2013 Stern Lecture. Save the date and spread the word!
