Sheroes & Heroes Vintage Spring Lunch Series

Who wears the cape?  Heroes and Sheroes: a Vintage Lunch Series

Who’s your hero? Your most important role model, your inspiration, your person of influence?  It may be one of the she-roes among us! This spring, Theological Horizons is tracing the stories of Christian sheroes and heroes: Jesus-followers who have lived faithfully in the world, whatever the cost.  

Each week as we gather for Vintage Lunch (now a 16 year old tradition), university leaders come as guest speakers, holding up a favorite Hero or Shero of the faith who has shaped their own lives, character and scholarship.  It’s a double blessing to get to know our own local “living legends” even as we learn about eminent Christians from the past. We’re grateful to the UVa Parents Fund and all of you who are generous Theological Horizons supporters--you’re the heroes and sheroes who make this series possible. Do join us any Friday at 1:00!
