Day’s events will include debut performance of original mass by Ed Willmington
Theologian Nicholas Wolterstorff of Yale University and artist-scholar Marcia McFee will be featured at Fuller’s inaugural Brehm Lecture, to be held Tuesday, November 3, from 10:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. The two will lecture and dialogue on the topic "Just Art: The Place of Arts in the Ethical Formation of Christian Disciples": Wolterstorff from the perspective of a theologian interested in art; McFee as an artist interested in theology.
