Author Hannah Brencher is delivering the 2018 Rinehart Lecture in Practical Theology at Ashland University on Wednesday, November 7, at 7 p.m. in the Jack and Deb Miller Chapel on the AU campus. Hannah will be speaking on the subject of her recently published book Come Matter Here - a call for Christians to start living like they mean it here and now.
The Rinehart Lecture in Practical Theology is an annual endowed public lecture honoring the memory and continuing the work of Dr. Don Rinehart who, in his 46 years of teaching at Ashland, inspired generations of students.
Dr. Peter Slade, chair of the Religion Department explained the choice of this year’s lecturer. “We invited Hannah to speak because this idea of being a disciple right where you are is something that is important to us as a Brethren Church related school. This life of authentic witness and ministry was something that the late Don Rinehart and his wife Jan lived out right here in this school in rural Ohio for nearly half a century.”
The event is co-sponsored by the Office of Christian Ministry and the Department of Religion. The lecture is free and open to the public. For further details contact Peter Slade
