Weeks Campus Center, Seminary of the Southwest

 

The Rev. John Floberg is supervising priest for three Episcopal congregations at Standing Rock Sioux Nation. Leader of the Episcopal Church’s support to water protectors at Standing Rock, Floberg organized a national call to serve that drew more than 500 interfaith clergy and lay ministers to Standing Rock in November 2016. Floberg is former canon missioner for the Diocese of North Dakota and a former member of the Executive Council of the Episcopal Church.

 

The Harvey Lecture is free and open to the public.

 


The Harvey Lectures were conceived at Seminary of the Southwest as a way of honoring the late Dean Harvey, who died unexpectedly in 1972, after serving as the seminary’s dean for just five years.

During Dean Harvey’s tenure, following some institutional turbulence during the 1960s, the seminary had begun rebuilding: in terms of enrollment, financial strength, and earning back the trust of many dioceses through the church.

The seminary community established the Harvey Lectures an annual series that would be overseen by student leaders and that would address the relationship between pastoral leadership and contemporary issues confronting the church.

Over the years, these Lectures have become a lasting and vital resource for the seminary, bringing important and diverse theological voices to our campus.
