EUREKA –The president of Christian Theological Seminary, Indianapolis, will deliver the sermon at Eureka College’s 158th Founders’ Day convocation. The Rev. Matthew Boulton will speak on “Faith as a Form of Courage” at 5 p.m. Feb. 8 in the Cerf Center. Admission is free and open to the public.
The sermon will be based on Luke 9:28-43a, which describes the pivotal episode in Jesus’ ministry, according to Boulton.
Boulton became the sixth president of Christian Theological Seminary in 2011.
Boulton’s book about John Calvin and spiritual formation titled Life in God: John Calvin, Practical Formation, and the Future of Protestant Theology was published by William B. Eerdmans in 2011.
Boulton is an ordained minister in the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ).
Eureka College was founded by members of the Christian Church and is among 17 colleges and universities affiliated with the church. The college was incorporated on Feb. 6, 1855, by an act of the Illinois Legislature. The founding date coincides with the birth date of the college’s most famous alumnus, Ronald Reagan, who graduated in 1932. In recognition of both the founding date and Reagan’s birth date, the college traditionally serves birthday cake at the reception following the convocation.
Also as part of the convocation, Eureka College first-year and upper-class scholars will be recognized. The students have achieved a minimum grade point average of 3.75 after completing at least 15 semester hours of coursework for first-year scholars and at least 30 semester hours of coursework for upper-class scholars.
