Biblical Love Songs with Lamentations and the Song of Songs. Professor Harvey Cox, Hollis Research Professor of Divinity at Harvard Divinity School and Professor Stephanie Paulsell, Houghton Professor of the Practice of Ministry at Harvard Divinity School and Affiliated Minister in the Memorial Church.
The Faith and Life Forum of the Memorial Church explores matters of faith and public life. This forum seeks to deepen our devotional lives by promoting religious literacy and cultural competency concerning communities of faith. Each week we hear from leading thinkers on this planet as it pertains to matters of ultimate concern such as love, justice, suffering and salvation. Speakers include scholars of religion, religious intellectuals, and other artists whose work captures conceptions of the sacred and wrestles with the mysterious dimensions of life. Through lecture, dialogue and debate, our mission is to enrich personal faith by expanding our awareness of the important and pivotal role religion plays across space and time.
