The 2023 Kellogg Lecture

Mark your calendars for 7pm ET on December 8th for the rescheduled Kellogg Lecture. This year's distinguished speaker, the Rev. Dr. Carter Heyward will speak at the Cathedral of St. John the Divine. This lecture, dedicated to the memory of the esteemed Rev. Frederic Brainerd Kellogg and his father, Frederic Rogers Kellogg, is titled "The Master's House and the Nagging Widow: A Stubborn Call to Dismantle."

In this lecture, Dr. Heyward will revisit Audre Lorde’s well-known warning, "The master's tools will never dismantle the master's house," and examine the tools necessary for dismantling the deadly sins of white Christian nationalism that continue to batter the Spirit of Justice-Love in the church.

The Kellogg Lecture will be taking place both in-person and online. In-person attendance is currently at capacity—please email [email protected] to be added to the waitlist. Click here to register for virtual attendance.
