MOUNT VERNON — Mount Vernon Nazarene University will host author Kelly Monroe Kullberg, the third guest of this year’s Lecture/Artist Series. Kullberg is the founder and project development coordinator of The Veritas Forum, a coalition of community members who host, plan and coordinate the most relevant discussions of life on university campuses. Located in the R.R. Hodges Chapel Auditorium and taking place on Monday, Nov. 26 at 10:20 a.m. and 7:15 p.m., this event is free and open to the public.
Kullberg authored and edited the best-seller Finding God at Harvard: Spiritual Journeys of Christian Thinkers and taught senior electives at Harvard College in film and C.S. Lewis while serving as a chaplain to the Harvard Graduate School Christian Fellowship from 1988-97. Kelly holds a B.A. in Organizational Behavior from Ohio University and an M.A. from the Ohio State University in Communication Theory. She was a visiting student at the Harvard Divinity School and at Gordon-Conwell Theological Seminary. She now resides in Columbus, Ohio, with her husband and children.
In 1992, Kullberg first organized The Veritas Forum. Veritas, found in many university mottos, such as Yale, Harvard, and Michigan, is a pursuit of truth. The reality for many Christian students is that this search is complex. Heavy questions such as: “Where does morality come from?” “Isn’t science rapidly approaching a complete explanation of nature?” “Do you ever have doubts about your views?” arise in our discussions, while a healthy and encouraging place for these discussions is absent.
The aim of The Veritas Forum is to change this landscape. In hosting university events that engage students and faculty in discussions about life’s hardest questions and the relevance of Jesus Christ to all of life, the coalition seeks to inspire the shapers of tomorrow’s culture to connect their hardest questions with the person and story of Jesus Christ.
