"To Change the World" inspires public event series

Messiah College professor Nance McCown

This fall, Messiah College launches a series of public events that explore the promise and challenge of being a faithful presence in contemporary society. The idea of “faithful presence”—
cooperating with individuals and institutions in order to serve the common good—originates in the book “To Change the World” by James Davison Hunter, an author and keen observer of political and cultural life in America, who will lecture at Messiah on Oct. 26. Hunter joins many other notable authors, artists and academic leaders in providing a year-long, campuswide“To Change the World” focus that includes public lectures and art exhibits.
