Parker Lecture Series, Feb 2018 Recap.

Dr. Pam Durso, FBC’s guest lecturer for the Parker Lecture Series, on Saturday night’s lecture led us through the history of women’s history in the church.  Her message was on point as it reminded us that we all are historians and our view of history is colored by our respective lens.

Up to the late 20th century, history was written through the lens of men when, in fact, there were plenty of prominent women leading the charge in church history.  The late Gerda Lerna stated: “History is the archives of human experiences and of the thoughts of past generations; history is our collective memory.”

Later on Sunday, Dr. Durso’s sermon was on:  A Vase made of Alabaster.  You can listen to it at this link.

This year FBC participated in the Baptist Women in Ministry (BWIM), Martha Stearns Marshall month of Ministry. where we had an opportunity to publicly voice our support of women in ministry, to be counted with other Baptist churches in celebrating the calling and gifts of women, and to remind our congregation that God does indeed call women to the work of the kingdom. But most importantly, this is an opportunity to invite into our pulpit a woman who has never had the opportunity to preach.
