Join Wesley for the Second Mondays Lecture Series This Fall

Nov 06 2012

This fall, four distinguished members of the Wesley faculty will speak to us as if it were their “last lecture.” The speakers bring different backgrounds and life experiences to their work in the world, but each has been asked the same question: “What concentrated wisdom from your chosen field would you want to pass on to us?” Please join us for four compelling lectures to learn the answers to that question.

 
Monday, November 12
Sondra Ely Wheeler
Martha Ashby Carr Professor of Christian Ethics
 
Sondra’s focus is on theological bioethics, biblical ethics, virtue ethics and the historical roots of Christian moral theology. She works with the American Association for the Advancement of Science and the Human Genome Initiative of the National Institutes of Health on programs relating to social, ethical and religious aspects of genetic technology. Her particular interest is in the interface between questions of biomedical ethics and the central commitments of Jewish and Christian faith. At present she is working on a project funded by the Lilly Endowment on the moral character of parental power and its implications for bioethics.
 
Mark your calendars for the next presentation in this series...
 
Monday, December 10
Drema McAllister-Wilson
Minister of Congregational Care, Metropolitan Memorial UMC
 
An ordained United Methodist Pastor, Drema has been serving in various pastoral capacities for the past twenty-five years including congregational pastor, Chapel Elder, hospice chaplain, and teacher. She received certification in thanatology in 2006 with an interest in being a death educator, end of life counselor, and spiritual midwife during the dying process. She is committed to helping persons at end of life confront their dying so that they can die peacefully and unafraid. Drema is adjunct faculty at Wesley and teaches a graduate course on Spirituality and Loss at George Washington University.
 
This fall, the Second Mondays series comes back to Wesley’s main campus at 4500 Massachusetts Ave., N.W. and returns to a breakfast format in Elderdice Hall. Please join us at 7:30 a.m. on the second Monday of each month. Breakfast will be provided and we will adjourn promptly at 9:00 a.m.
