BETHANY, W.Va. — Mark your calendars for Bethany College’s Oreon E.  Scott Lectures on March 27 and 28. Since its founding in 1840 by Alexander Campbell, Bethany has been affiliated with the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ). The Scott Lectures began in 1956 as a way to strengthen church leaders and grow deep in the faith of the Christian Church.
This year’s event will be led by Rev. Dr. José Francisco Morales Torres with the theme of “Christ-Centered and Opened to the Religious Other: The Exception or the Rule?” Torres is the assistant professor of Latinx studies and religion at Chicago Theological Seminary. As a historical and comparative theologian, Torres places historical voices into conversation with historicallymarginalized voices, within and beyond the Christian tradition, offering radical re-articulations of Christian doctrines for today’s realities.  
The two-day event will be held at the First Christian Church in Washington, Pa.  Lodging information for those traveling from out of the area and registration forms can be found here. The Scott Lectures registration fee to attend in person is $65 for participants and $30 for seminarians. Can’t make it? You can still register to attend the event via Zoom for $30. 
We hope you join us to take part in Bethany’s longstanding annual tradition.
