The Hall of Men will gather on Thursday, June 28 in the year of our Lord 2018.
Dr. Matthew Umbarger, Assistant Professor of Theology at Newman University, will present Alexander Campbell, a 19th century Scots-Irish immigrant to the United States. Alexander, his father Thomas Campbell, and Barton W. Stone were leaders of the Restoration Movement (also called the Stone-Campbell Movement), and thus the fathers of the Disciples of Christ or Christian churches. Dr. Umbarger grew up in this tradition and eventually converted to Roman Catholicism (Director Doom also grew up int his tradition). This will be a lecture you don't want to miss.
As usual, doors will open at The Ladder at 7 pm and food will be served around 7:30 pm. At 8:30 pm we'll prepare for the lecture with the Eighth Day Convocation: hymn, patristic and scripture readings, the Nicene Creed, and the Lord's Prayer. Then a great lecture followed by good questions, discussion, and fellowship.
We hope you can join us at The Hall.
