Schaeffer Foundation president to speak at WBU chapel

PLAINVIEW – The Office of Church Service at Wayland Baptist University will host Udo Middelmann for a time of discussion and dialogue on Tuesday and Wednesday.

              Middelmann is the president of the Francis A. Schaeffer Foundation in New York. The foundation was founded by Dr. Francis A Schaeffer, an author and theologian, who is recognized as one of the most influential Christian thinkers of the day.

              Middelmann, who has served as the consultant and principle speaker on “Ethics for a Civil Society” for the Russian Ministry for Education since 1991, speaks to groups on topics dealing with how religion impacts everyday life. In his sessions Middelmann doesn’t lecture so much as answer questions and discuss issues taken from those in attendance.

              A round table discussion with Middelmann will be held at 6 p.m. Tuesday in room 211 of the Wayland University Center. The discussion is open to the community. On Wednesday morning, ministers are invited to attend a breakfast and forum with Middelmann at 7:30 a.m. in the Wayland cafeteria. The breakfast is sponsored by the Office of Church Services.

              Middelmann will speak at Wayland’s chapel service at 11 a.m. on Wednesday and at the university ministerial fellowship meeting at noon in UC 211.
