Lecture Series

The bi-annual Presbyterian Women’s Lecture Series was originally endowed by Miss Laura Pettway. She was a long-term member of First Presbyterian Church; at her death in 1974, she left her gift to the Women of the Church of this congregation. Since the endowment’s creation it was doubled anonymously in honor of Julia Taylor White. This series has brought some of the most important minds in Christian theology and biblical scholars, reinforcing our deeply thoughtful Presbyterian Heritage. In 2015 the lecture series was renamed The Pettway Lecture Series.

The 2019 Pettway Lecture Series and Union Ave Books present Barbara Brown Taylor and her new book Holy Envy: Finding God in the Faith of Others sponsored by the Friends of the Knox County Public Library.

Sale of tickets begins March 4, 2019. One copy of Holy Envy is included with the purchase of a single ticket and Barbara Brown Taylor will be available to sign your book following the event.

The event will be held at First Presbyterian Church, Knoxville on April 8, 2019 and will begin at 7:00 p.m. Doors will open at 6:00 p.m. Seating is on a first come first serve basis. The event will be moderated by Dr. William C. Pender.
