The David P. Lyons Lecture in Theology was established to honor the  memory and ministry of Rev. David Lyons. Each spring, a distinguished scholar is invited to share insight and understandings in the areas related to theology, biblical interpretation, religious history, and spirituality. Grounded in a deep and abiding faith, Rev. Lyons opened windows and doors for seeing and knowing God outside the usual human parameters defining God.
