Tillman and Denison to lead hunger lectures at HPU


Kalie Lowrie from HPU sends this over. It looks like a good lecture of those interested in hunger issues. Feeding people is one of the significant aspects of Texas Hope 2010.

BROWNWOOD – Howard Payne University will host the Second Annual Currie-Strickland Lectures in Christian Ethics on April 27, which will discuss “Ethics and Evangelism and the Problem of Hunger.”

The speakers will be Bill Tillman, T. B. Maston Professor of Christian Ethics at the Logsdon School of Theology at Hardin-Simmons University, and Jim Denison, named recently as theologian-in-residence of the Baptist General Convention of Texas after serving as pastor of Park Cities Baptist Church in Dallas for 10 years.

Tillman will address what the Bible says about hunger – the challenge that hunger presents, in terms of both ethics and evangelism. Denison will speak about how the people of God live out what Scripture and faith in Christ call them to do about hunger.

The lectures will take place from 1:30 to 5:00 p.m. in HPU’s campus theatre.

The theme of the lectures ties in with the Texas Hope 2010 emphasis of the Baptist General Convention of Texas, an initiative to share the hope of Christ with every Texan by Easter 2010 and meet human needs. 

Though open to the public and free of charge, reservations are required. Please contact Howard Payne University’s Office of University Advancement by e-mail at currie-strickland@hputx.edu or by phone at 800-950-8465 or 325-649-8006.
