2020 Res Publica Lectures
Covenant College will be hosting Dr. Mark Regnerus, professor of sociology at the University of Texas, next week for our annual Res Publica lectures. He will be speaking in chapel January 16 and 17, at 11:00 am both days. The topic he will be addressing is "The Future of Christian Marriage." This lecture series is open to the general public.
Covenant College hosts this annual lecture series for the purpose of building up the church and bolstering an informed lay leadership to address serious public challenges facing our world. These lectures give us a chance to tap into the wisdom of top scholars from around the world who are tackling big issues that we as members of Christ’s body must confront. They are known as “Res Publica” (Latin for public affairs or issues). It’s where our English word “Republic” comes from. We hope these lectures will help to address public issues thoughtfully and faithfully.
