In 1950, the John P. and Carolina Schrag Kaufman family established the Menno Simons Lectureship Endowment. This fund promotes research and public lectures by recognized scholars relating to Anabaptist-Mennonite history, thought, life and culture, both past and present. In 1997, the family of William E. and Meta Goering Juhnke contributed substantially to the endowment. The Kaufman and Juhnke families had their roots in the Eden Mennonite Church of Moundridge. In 2009 the invited lecturer will be Scott Holland, who will address the following:

1. Public Theology as Seeking Cultures of Peace
2. Entering Whitman’s America: A Theopoetics of Public Life
3. The Poetics of Peace
4. Prophetic Vision, Poetic Voice and Pragmatic Solidarity
