The Mel and Pat Palmer Lecture Series honors the Palmer’s dedication to the church of Jesus Christ, Peace Church in particular, and allows their legacy to continue to build-up and spread the word in Greensboro and beyond about our great church and its love for the gospel.
Peace United Church of Christ is very excited to announce the formation and initiation of the Mel and Pat Palmer Lecture Series. This lecture series, which kicked off March 8-9, 2014, honors Mel and Pat Palmer’s dedication to the church of Jesus Christ, Peace Church in particular, and allows their legacy to continue to build-up and spread the word in Greensboro and beyond about our great church and its love for the gospel. Mel Palmer was the Senior Pastor of Peace UCC for over thirty years, from 1961 to 1993. Here are a few of the previous lecture series programs we have sponsored:
“God is Great, God Is Green: The Bible and Ecology” with Rev. Dr. Clint McCann of Eden Theological Seminary.
Our inaugural lecture series featured The Interfaith Amigos comprised of UCC pastor Reverend Don Mackenzie, Rabbi Ted Falcon, and Imam Jamal Rahman. These three religious leaders of the Abrahamic faiths have been paving the way in regard to interfaith relations and understanding, their work being featured in the New York Times and History Channel among many other outlets around the world. They are the authors of two books “Getting to the Heart of Interfaith: The Eye-Opening, Hope-filled Friendship of a Pastor, a Rabbi, and a Sheikh,” and “Religion Gone Astray: What We Found at the Heart of Interfaith.”
The Palmer Lecture Series presents a variety of programs each year, dealing with the pressing social and theological issues facing our world today. Those who would like to be on the Lecture series e-mail list, are asked to email the church office at firstname.lastname@example.org
