  • John H. Westerhoff was Professor of Religion and Education at Duke University and an Episcopal priest. The service begins with organ music (0:00:00-0:06:10). The speaker reads from the Scriptures and gives a word of prayer (0:06:11-0:07:29). John H. Westerhoff is introduced as the Spring Lecturer (0:07:30-0:09:17). Westerhoff begins his lecture by thanking God for everyone, and he introduces his topic of the process of education for catechetics (0:09:18-0:14:56). He believes that education should be modeled after a journey or pilgrimage with the right understanding of conversion and nurturing (0:14:57-0:20:05). Westerhoff begins with conversion, and he defines it as the opening of a new way of seeing the world and an ongoing process (0:20:06-0:37:12). Westerhoff speaks at length of remembering baptism and our perfection in Christ, and he argues that the gospel begins with grace and faithful living, not sin (0:37:13-1:00:55).
