Theology professor and author Dr. Vincent Bacote to speak at Geneva

The first message, given during Geneva’s 10:10 a.m. chapel hour, will be “The Word of (Public and Private) Life.” Chapel, which takes place in Metheny Fieldhouse, is a weekly time for the Geneva community to gather and praise the Lord.

This lecture will be at 7:30 p.m. in John White Chapel of Old Main.

“It is important to recognize that our faith is not reserved for some kind of Christian ghetto,” Dr. Bacote is quoted to say on Wheaton’s faculty page, which further lists over 30 of Dr. Bacote’s publications. “It ought to impact every facet of our lives and society. I hope to create this kind of passion in students as they study theology, a truly exciting subject.”

CACE, according to its website, “supports the mission of Wheaton College by promoting and encouraging the formation of moral character and the application of biblical ethics to contemporary moral decisions,” a goal it strives towards through a portfolio of activities, including ethical training, public forums, and projects.

Both presentations are free and open to the public.
