Family concert     Send a link to a friend

[SEPT. 16, 2004]  SPRINGFIELD -- The Holy Ground, a Springfield coffeehouse, is hosting an open house concert on Sept. 25 from 7 to 11 p.m. Special guest will be Michele Stevenson singing songs from her CD "Walk With Me!" Pastor Greg Roe and the World Harvest Church Praise Team will also be guests, along with others.

An announcement from Don Hunt, director of Chosen Generation Gospel Ministries, says, "You really don't want to miss the blessing that Michele is going to be handing out through her testimony and through the musical gift God has given to her!"

You are invited to come and browse around while enjoying the music and the atmosphere. The vision for the Holy Ground is of a Christian gathering place where every member of the family will have a place to go and activities specific for their age group.

If you're looking for someplace to go on the weekend where you don't have to leave your children behind or if you want to just get away for a special time for yourself and your spouse, then Holy Ground is a place for you.

The new location is at 304 W. Allen in Springfield. For more information, call (217) 306-2592.

Send a link to a friend

[SEPT. 3, 2004]  Lincoln Christian College and Seminary is pleased to announce that Dr. Francis J. Beckwith, associate director of the J.M. Dawson Institute of Church-State Studies and associate professor of church-state studies at Baylor University, will present the annual James D. Strauss Lectures on Oct. 5 and 6.

Dr. Beckwith will deliver three lectures under the theme "Can the Public Square Be Religiously Neutral?" His latest book, "Law, Darwinism, & Public Education: The Establishment Clause and the Challenge of Intelligent Design," published in 2003 by Rowman & Littlefield, has received a great deal of attention nationwide for its significant contribution to the debate over the teaching of intelligent design in public schools.

Beckwith is also associate editor of the Journal of Church & State, published at Baylor. He has served as a research fellow at Princeton University and has held full-time faculty appointments at Trinity International University, Whittier College and the University of Nevada, Las Vegas. He is a nationally recognized authority on issues of church and state and the relationship between religion and public policy.

He is a graduate of Fordham University with a doctorate and a master's degree in philosophy. He also holds a master of juridical studies degree from the Washington University School of Law in St. Louis.

He has written or edited 11 books, primarily focusing on Christian interaction with social ethics and public policy issues. He has also published articles in over a dozen professional journals on philosophy, law, ethics and religion and in six scholarly encyclopedias.

The times, locations and titles of Beckwith's lectures are as follows:

  • Tuesday, Oct. 5, 9:30 a.m., Earl C. Hargrove Chapel Auditorium: "Is Statecraft Soulcraft? Faith, Politics and Legal Neutrality"

  • Tuesday, Oct. 5, 7 p.m., Restoration Hall, Room 49: "A Liberty Not Fully Evolved? Can Public Teachers Criticize Darwinism Without Violating the Constitution?"

  • Wednesday, Oct. 6, 9:30 a.m., Earl C. Hargrove Chapel Auditorium: "Bioethics, Personhood and Jurisprudential Neutrality"
