Brethren in Christ Scholar to Lecture at Messiah College

Wendy Urban-Mead, assistant professor of history at Bard College, will present a lecture at Messiah College on Thursday, January 12, titled “Being Brethren in Christ in a Time of Violence:  Zimbabwe in the 1970s and 1980s.” Urban-Mead wrote her dissertation on the history of the Brethren in Christ mission and church in Zimbabwe, and is currently working to turn her dissertation into a book.

The lecture is sponsored by the Departments of History and Biblical and Religious Studies, and the Sider Institute for Anabaptist, Pietist, and Wesleyan Studies.

The lecture begins at 4 p.m. on the 12th, and will be held in Boyer 131.

I hope some readers of The Search for Piety and Obedience will be able to attend Urban-Mead’s lecture. Since I can’t make it, maybe one of you can give a synopsis!
