Chapman University’s Founders Day

Founders DayChapman University will hold our 32nd Annual Founders Day, March 13-14, 2015.  The two day event held on the Orange, CA campus has many strong options for participants to enjoy:

  • Richard H. Lowery, Hebrew Bible scholar and teacher, will relate foundational stories in Genesis to contemporary issues in human rights. His PhD is from Yale and he has taught at Phillips Theological Seminary until joining his wife, the Rev. Sharon Watkins, in Indianapolis while she serves Disciples as the General Minister and President. Rick is a witty and insightful teacher. He will do three lectures on Friday, March 13 and one the following day in the afternoon.
    • Worship on Saturday morning in the Wallace All Faith’s Chapel. Our preacher is returning to her alma mater:  Rita Nakashima Brock ’72. Rita heads the Soul Repair Center at Brite Divinity School, doing research and public education about moral injury.  We will honor David Downing as Disciples Church Leaders of the Year and Petra Malleis-Sternberg as the United Church of Christ Church Leaders of the Year.
    • An hour concert by Chapman University’s Concert Choir on Saturday afternoon after Rick Lowery’s final lecture.
    • Workshops on Saturday morning for prospective students and their parents as well as a talk on Mindfulness by Dr. Gail Stearns, Dean of the Wallace All Faith’s Chapel.
    • A big reunion event—a Friday evening dinner for all alumni, Disciples on Campus parents and prospective parents and Chapman friends. Then we will be going to—
    • A new, exciting event:  Godspell which will be performed in the Wallace All Faiths Chapel on Friday and Saturday nights at 7:30 pm and Sunday afternoon at 2 pm. DOC senior David Ruby is the director.
