Bishop Owensby to Lecture


The Beecken Center of the School of Theology will host its second FaithMatters event, March 6–7, on the campus of the University of the South in Sewanee. The event will be facilitated by the Rt. Rev. Jacob W. Owensby, Episcopal bishop of the Episcopal Diocese of Western Louisiana and author of “A Resurrection Shaped Life: Dying and Rising on Planet Earth.” Owensby will deliver an evening lecture titled “Leaning into the Resurrection” in All Saints’ Chapel on Friday, March 6, and lead an all-day workshop, “A Resurrection Shaped Life” on Saturday, March 7.

The lecture is free and open to the public (a free-will offering will be collected), and the workshop is open to anyone for a fee of $79 until Feb. 28, and $99 thereafter.

Owensby will explore the resurrection of Christ not as a distant, mysterious event, but as an active force working in the world today. Workshop participants will explore past moments of resurrection in their lives as resources for ministry to others needing new life.
