Dr. Kim Harris, professor of communication and director of the William Jewell College Theatre, will present a free lecture in William Jewell’s “Journeys of Mind and Faith” series at 7 p.m. Wednesday, October 24, in Room 222 in the Yates-Gill College Union on the campus in Liberty, Mo. The public is invited to attend, and no tickets or reservations are required. Dr. Harris’ address is entitled “Through a Child’s Eyes.”

“The world is a confusing place in which to find faith and to understand it,” Dr. Harris said. “At least this is what I have thought from the time I was a child. Still very much a child at heart, I react to the bombarding questions of why humans exist, why they love to fight each other and hate to love each other. In the midst of the daily questions filtered through newspapers, television, the Internet and interpersonal interactions, God sits. And where God sits many more questions intersect, including whether God can or does ‘sit’ or set himself in any particular paradigm.”

Dr. Harris received his B.A. from Carson-Newman College and his M.S. and Ph.D. from Southern Illinois University. He has completed additional study at the University of Missouri-Kansas City. He joined the William Jewell faculty in 1979.

The “Journeys of Mind and Faith” series addresses the tension often inherent in addressing questions of faith and intellect.

“As a Christian liberal arts college, William Jewell has at its disposal the uncommonly conjoined resources of intellectual inquiry and faith,” says series coordinator Dr. Milton Horne. “This series takes advantage of those resources to present to the community the stories of individuals whose Christian and intellectual journeys, while not yet complete, have been rewarding and worthwhile.”
