1 min read

Harvard’s Memorial Church will host the 101st annual William Beldon Noble Lectures, which will be given by the Right Rev. John S. Spong, on March 6, 7, and 8 at 8 p.m.

Spong, an author and theologian and the former Episcopal Bishop of Newark, N.J., will give the series of lectures, titled, “Developing a New Christianity for a New Millennium.”

A response to each lecture will be given by Owen J. Gingerich, professor of astronomy and the history of science at Harvard; the Rev. Titus Presler, rector of St. Peter’s Episcopal Church in Cambridge; and the Rev. Leroy Rouner, professor of philosophy, religion, and philosophical theology at Boston University.

Questions about the future of Christianity will be addressed in this three-part lecture series, which was founded in 1898. Past lecturers include Theodore Roosevelt, Harvey Cox, Eugene McCarthy, former Archbishop of Canterbury Lord Runcie, Hans Küng, Paul Tillich, and Armand Nicholi.

All lectures are free and open to the public.
