The Public Life Personal Faith series, inaugurated in 2010, is a fundraising and outreach event of Perkins School of Theology in service to the larger community. The luncheon provides an opportunity for participants to engage scholars on topics related to why and how personal faith shapes public life. “We are called to know, love, and serve God and neighbor in our daily lives through sharing the Gospel of truth, mercy, justice, and love,” explains Dr. John Martin, Director of Development at Perkins. “Personal faith has practical consequences for the way we think, speak, make choices, and live our public lives.” This luncheon also serves as a major fundraiser for student scholarships.
The Bolin Family 2019 Public Life Personal Faith Scholarship Luncheon will be held on Friday, February 8, 2019. We are happy to announce the featured guest will be Judy Woodruff, anchor of PBS NewsHour. She will be interviewed by Peggy Wehmeyer, former national news religion reporter for ABC's World News Tonight.
The 2019 Luncheon is sold out.
