Join Dean Jonathan Lee Walton of the Wake Forest University School of Divinity and Hendricks Chapel Dean Brian Konkol for a virtual conversation on Tuesday, Aug. 11, at 7 p.m. ET. Walton and Konkol will consider social justice and civil rights from a lens of love.

The virtual event can be accessed on Facebook Live on Hendricks Chapel’s Facebook page or Zoom webinar. Pre-registration is not required, and the conversation is free and available to all.

Walton joined Wake Forest University in 2019, after serving as Plummer Professor of Christian Morals and the Pusey Minister in the Memorial Church of Harvard University. His latest book, “A Lens of Love: Reading the Bible in Its World for Our World” (Westminster John Knox Press, 2018), explores the Bible from the perspective of the most vulnerable and violated characters toward developing a Christian social ethic of radical inclusion and human affirmation. Walton is also an outspoken advocate for social justice and civil rights.

This will be the ninth installment of “Matters that Matter: A Conversation Series from Hendricks Chapel,” a virtual series hosted by Hendricks Chapel, which brings local and national thought leaders together in conversation to discuss critical matters facing society. Learn more at
