Pre-lectures scoops. One of the major events on The Jenkins Institute’s calendar is the Freed-Hardeman Lectureships. Jeff has attended for over 40 years now without missing a year and I’ve missed one in 38 years. We will for about the fifth year present each day (Tu-Th) at 12:45 on the Main Aud in Loyd a session they call Preacher Therapy (and, yes, there will be giveaways :)).They are preceded by the Sunset Lectures that Jeff is at this week and followed up by the Faulkner Lectures that Dale will be at, so we'll call this pre-lectureships scoops and here are some scoops for you to talk about.
