Ministers/Laity Week Features Bishop Huie
Laity and Ministers will enjoy endowed lectureships and a variety of worship services and workshops at the upcoming Ministers Week event hosted annually by Perkins Theological School. This continuing education program includes a great lineup of speakers such as author Rev. Walter Brueggemann as keynote speaker, Bishop Janice Riggle Huie, and Dr. Loida Martell-Odero. Walter is Professor Emeritus of Old Testament at Columbia Theological Seminary and Loida Martell-Oterro is both a licenced veterinarian and Professor of Constructive Theology at Palmer Theological Seminary in Pennsylvania.
The event spans February 1-2, with a shorter format ending Tuesday at 6. p.m. “The single overnight stay greatly lowers the registration price this year,” notes Priscilla Pope-Levison, Associate Dean for External Programs and Professor of Ministerial Studies Perkins School of Theology. “It is a major unifying event for United Methodism in the South Central Jurisdiction.”
