Effective July 30, following new guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Alabama Department of Public Health (ADPH), Samford University is requiring all persons on campus, regardless of vaccination status, to wear face masks in all public indoor settings.

Dr. Beckwith will examine Augustine of Hippo the preacher. How did St. Augustine prepare to preach? What kind of sermons did he preach? What advice did he give to young preachers of his day? Complimentary lunch is included. Registration is required.

Join us on campus this fall for the Text to Sermon lecture series in October. "Back to the Future: Examining Sermons from the Christian Tradition" is this fall's theme as four Beeson faculty members explore the sermons of great preachers of the past.
