Public Lectures

Our mandate is to educate the whole people of God—and that includes the Christian community of Vancouver and beyond. We offer free public lectures by our own world-class faculty, and by visiting scholars, teachers, and authors from around the world.

We host two regular lecture series—Summer Lectures and the Laing Lectures—as well as special events throughout the year.

Most of our lectures are recorded and available as audio downloads through RegentAudio.com

Summer Lectures

In the Spring and Summer Sessions, we host lectures every week to highlight the research of our regular faculty and our visiting summer lecturers. Due to closure of the College related to Covid-19, all of our Summer 2020 lectures will be streamed online. Please see specific lecture posts for the livestream link.

The Shape of Family: Love, Belonging, and COVID-19

Aalders_cindy-240

With Cindy Aalders

Our free summer Evening Public Lectures feature a wide range of professors, both guests and Regent regulars. Enjoy delving deep into a pressing issue with a wise guide; then brave the mic to ask your burning question. Better (and cheaper) than a night at the movies. 

Due to closure of the College related to Covid-19, all of our Summer 2020 lectures will be streamed online. 

Lecture Description: Our culture, including evangelical church culture, often pays more attention to the nuclear family than to other forms of relationships. In the age of COVID-19, attentiveness to the family circle has intensified as households mark out safe boundaries for connection. Yet many others remain outside and disconnected. This lecture will turn to history to probe the shape of past families and explore historical experiences of love and belonging. It will propose hopeful and healing ways through which we can choose to retrace the lines that connect and separate us all.

Cindy Aalders is Director of the John Richard Allison Library and Assistant Professor of the History of Christianity at Regent College. Her doctoral studies at the University of Oxford focused on the spiritual lives and manuscript cultures of eighteenth-century British women. In addition to numerous journal articles and book chapters, she is the author of To Express the Ineffable: The Hymns and Spirituality of Anne Steele. Her current research explores the religious lives of eighteenth-century children.

Questions can be submitted by emailing [email protected] during the lecture.
