King's Public Lectures is a new initiative that seeks to provide our alumni and supporters with access to life-long learning from King’s, to highlight the high caliber of education that King’s professors provide, and to help King's more fully live out our vision.
Throughout the months of October and November we invite you to attend an online lecture with one of King’s faculty. These lectures will take place via Zoom on Monday evenings from 7:00 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. and are free of charge.
If you have any questions, please contact Kathleen Busch, Manager of Community Relations.
Upcoming Public Lecture Series
The Justice Lectures
The Justice Lectures, cohosted by the King’s Alumni Office and King’s Micah Centre, will explore what the ancient biblical call to justice means for our particular historical moment. The global pandemic and recent calls for racial equity around the world have made the call to justice as important as ever. But what, exactly, is justice? What difference does justice make for impoverished communities around the world who have been so deeply affected by the pandemic? What is a just and thoughtful approach to our history, marked as it is by racism? The Justice Lectures will reflect on these questions and more.
The Educating for Life Public Lecture Series is co-hosted by the Alumni Office and the Education Department. This series is a response to several requests from our teacher graduates who wanted to access professional development from their alma mater. As our graduates are well aware, great teachers engage in life-long learning. We think these lectures are thoughtful reflections on the biblical call to justice in our present contexts. These reflections will no doubt foster teachers’ imaginations on how they and their students might engage with the world.
