The Parry Lecture at Plymouth Church is a ministry made possible through the benevolence of Arthur and Anne Mae Parry, Jr., whose funding first seeded the lectures in memory of Arthur's parents, Arthur and Marguerite Parry, Sr. We are most grateful to Arthur and Anna Mae, whose generosity has contributed so significantly to the educational ministry, as well as the outreach efforts, of Plymouth Church.
It is the intent of the Parry Lectures to bring to Plymouth Church and to Fort Wayne the pioneering thinkers and interpreters of Christian faith, tradition, and practice. Through the lecture, we seek to explore contemporary thought that will ground us more fully in a faith that is as wise as it is relevant.
Past lecturers have included: Martin Marty, William Sloan Coffin, Sam Keen, Bishop John Shelby Spong, Thomas Troeger, Elias "Abuna" Chacour, Ted Peters, Walter and June Wink, Susan Brooks Thistlethwaite, Rita Nakashima Brock, Luke Timothy Johnson, Joan Brown Campbell, Gary Dorrien, and Norman Wirzba.
