This fall, four distinguished members of the Wesley Theological Seminary faculty will give a presentation 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.
On Monday, November 12, †Professor Sondra Wheeler will speak at 7:30 a.m. on Wesley's main campus at 4500 Massachusetts Avenue, NW, Washington, D.C. Sondra's focus is on theological bioethics, biblical ethics, virtue ethics and the historical roots of Christian moral theology. She also 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.
†Breakfast will be provided. The event is free to the public.
†RSVP: 202-885-8630 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
