King College and the Buechner Institute are pleased to present Richard Ray, general
editor for Kerygma Bible Studies, on Wednesday, August 31, 2011, for the opening convocation
of the 2011-2012 Buechner Lecture Series, In The Grand Scheme of Things.
Ray is general editor for Kerygma Bible Studies, the director of the Children's Trust
Society of the Grandfather Home for Children, a member of the Governing Board of the
Buechner Institute, and the chairman of the Board of Directors of the Presbyterian
Heritage Center in Montreat, North Carolina.
Ray is an avid student of early Christian thought and the ways in which it has influenced
the development of faith and culture for centuries.
Richard Ray has been one of the sources behind the philosophy that drives the Buechner
Institute, said Dale Brown, director of the Buechner Institute. His is the perfect
voice to set the agenda for our year.
After graduating from Dartmouth College, Union Theological Seminary, and the University
of St. Andrews, Ray served as pastor for sixteen years at the First Presbyterian Church
in Bristol, Tenn., and as an adjunct professor at King College. Ray is a member of
the Board of Trustees of King College.
Ray will speak in King's Memorial Chapel at 10:30 a.m. The event is open to the public
and free to attend. For more information, contact Dale Brown at 423.652.4156 or visit
