Theologian in Residence – Karen Wright Marsh: Vintage Saints and Sinners

September 27 6:30 - 7:30 pm

Wednesday | September 27 | 6:30 p.m.
Edinburgh Building – Main Hall

The word saint conjures up images of superstar Christians revered for their spectacular acts and otherworldly piety. But when we take a closer look at the lives of these spiritual heavyweights, we learn that they also experienced struggle, doubt, and heartache. In fact, we learn that in many ways they’re not all that different than us. In this talk, author Karen Wright Marsh will reveal surprising lessons in everyday spirituality from “saints” ― folks who lived and breathed, and failed and followed God. Karen‘s books will be available for purchase. If you would like to have dinner before the event (5:00-6:30 in Pickard Hall), be sure to register for dinner by Sunday, September 24.

We are excited to have Karen Wright Marsh join us as our Theologian In Residence as she discusses her book Vintage Saints and Sinners on Wednesday, September 27 at 6:30 p.m. in the Main Hall. Karen is an author speaker and the executive director and co-founder of Theological Horizons, a ministry that supports Christians and seekers in academia by providing a welcoming community for engaging faith, thought and life. She is the host of the Vintage Saints and Sinners podcast. She holds degrees in philosophy from Wheaton College and linguistics from the University of Virginia. Karen lives with Charles Marsh, a UVA professor, at the Bonhoeffer House in Charlottesville, Virginia. Registration is required.
