The 2015 Walter B. and Kay W. Shurden Lectures on Religious Liberty and Separation of Church and State will take place April 7-8 at McAfee School of Theology in Atlanta and Mercer University in Macon, Georgia. This year’s speaker is Alan Brownstein, professor emeritus at the University of California, Davis, School of Law.

In addition to an opportunity to learn about church-state issues, the Shurden Lectures present a chance to meet members of the BJC staff and interact with other supporters of religious liberty. The lectures are free and open to the public, and all are invited to come for one or all three presentations.
