On Monday, March 21, and Tuesday, March 22, Messiah College’s Sider Institute for Anabaptist, Pietist, and Wesleyan Studies will host a series of lectures on Anabaptism. Ronald J. Sider — noted theologian, Palmer Seminary professor, founder of Evangelicals for Social Action, and Brethren in Christ church member — will deliver the lectures.

Here’s the information from the Messiah College website:
