 Three McMurry University professors gave talks at St. Luke United Methodist Church on Wednesday nights in November during its “McMurry Professor” series.

Dr. Jeffery Kinlaw, professor of philosophy, spoke on “How the existence of an omnipotent and perfectly loving God is consistent with the existence of evil.”

Dr. Jerry Hollingsworth, professor of sociology, did a presentation on street children and poverty inside the shantytowns of Peru. 

Dr. John Miller, professor of religion, spoke about “Conceptions of Forgiveness in the Gospel of Matthew. “

“These outstanding faculty members have served the Strategic Plan’s goal of enhancing McMurry’s connection with the United Methodist Church by sharing their academic expertise with the members of St. Luke UMC in Midland,” said Dr. Philip LeMasters, dean of the School of Social Sciences and Religion.  “We look forward to hearing from other congregations in our region that would like our professors to speak in Christian education classes and other settings.”
